Ghost Finder Edinburgh now launched!

Och aye! Ghosts galore in Scotland’s historic, atmospheric capital city can be quickly located thanks to the second of my ongoing series of iPhone apps – Ghost Finder Edinburgh.

Edinburgh is unusual in that it has several tourist spots for which the ghosts supposedly haunting them are the main attraction. However, there are many other less well-known locations, including pubs, parks, theatres, graveyards, streets (or ‘wynds’) and private homes.

Each location has been meticulously plotted on Google maps, tied in with the individual phone’s GPS. The database of all the sites plus info on the ghosts said to be haunting them has been researched and written by me.

Operation is intuitive and easy to navigate. The database has been arranged alphabetically but can also be searched for key words and location name.  The user can also access the information on each site one at a time by pressing the location-finding ‘pins’ on the map. By pressing the compass symbol, they can find the nearest spooky site to their own position. The detailed maps can then be used to hone in on the precise co-ordinates or expanded to show the number of haunted locations in the chosen area.

The app is the most comprehensive gazetteer of haunted sites in Edinburgh available digitally or in print. And it’s available to download for just 69p!
