When you arrive at the churchyard the atmosphere is very strange, it is almost if you feel that there is a presence of poltergeists and ghosts! :-))) The cemetry is very dark and I expected it to be larger, but it is a must to see when visiting Edinburgh. At the entrance of the churchyard you can book a tour (or somewhere else in the centre of the city) which visit the cemetry at night and tell ghostly stories ... CREEPY!!! :-)

You can take a tour of the Kirkyard with the City of the Dead tours, and you’ll actually get to go inside the Black Masoleum where the poltergeist is said to be found. I did a tour on Halloween night, and it was creepy, but considering over 100 people joined me on the tour that night it kind of lost some of its appeal. I’ll definitely do it again some day when there are less people around to get the full effect!

An interesting walk, with many of Edinburgh's "walking tours" passing through. Most of the tours are free, and don't mind if you simply join in as you find them, but always a good idea to ask first.
Also worth a visit id Bobby's bar, on the right of the main entrance to the Kirkyard.
