Divinely selected places have secrets and mysteries within them that cannot be explained. They are found around the world in the most obscure corners. Hand-picked extraordinary places have been curated so that you can divulge into their wonder.
With awe, we will then explore them … together.
Hence, Mysterious Adventures Tours is proud to offer you a journey to Scotland, with all its mysteries and phenomena. This voyage, accompanied by two strong mediums from the Daughters of Hecate, will explore a circular path of the Historic Witchcraft Trials sites and the haunted and mystical impressions that have been forever-embedded from its tragedies.
This chilling tour will guide you into a time period that is known as Scotland’s “Burning Times”. This period, ranging from 1563 to 1763, threw Scotland into a supernatural paranoia frenzy. The passing of the Witchcraft Act of 1563 made witchcraft a capital offense. Historical devastating Witch Trials resulted, spinning governing towns into a disarray of human tragedy.
As a result, it is estimated that 4,000 to 6,000 people were prosecuted for witchcraft, resulting in 1,500 executions. Approximately 75% of those accused were women.
Tour with us to be introduced to the Scottish cities through a circle of magic and haunts. Our target cities contributed the most significant chronicles to the Witchcraft tragedies, including Edinburgh, Aberdeen, The Highland’s Loch Ness, and Stirling.
