Hidden under the sleepy suburban streets of Edinburgh lies the Gilmerton Cove, a sequence of chambers and underground passageways carved by hand out of sandstone. Nobody is really sure why they were built, or even when, but there’s been plenty of speculation. Were they used by a cult or a coven, smugglers or a secret drinking club? Take a tour and see what you think when you visit Gilmerton Cove.
