Pinpointing haunted places in London and Edinburgh

Just to let you know my Ghost Finder London and Ghost Finder Edinburgh apps are now available for Android phones as well as for iPhones. Just in time for Hallowe’en!

Both apps use Google maps to pinpoint the haunted locations of these historic and very spooky cities. The sites are all clearly labelled: all you have to do is click on them to read about the sites and the ghosts said to be haunting them. Or you can browse and search the database, which has been researched and written by me.

Both London and Edinburgh have famously haunted locations but there are many other much less well-known places which are just as interesting: pubs, parks, stations, streets and obscure houses. There are over 300 haunted sites on Ghost Finder London and the haunted locations in Edinburgh have been arranged with those of the Royal Mile first, then radiating out to the outlying areas, making it particularly useful for the tourist.

They’re not free – you’ll have to pay all of £1.49 for Ghost Finder London (the same as half a pint in a haunted pub!) and just 69p for Ghost Finder Edinburgh. The iPhone versions are the same price.
