Tales from the Crypt

It just wouldn’t be All Hallows Eve without a graveyard now would it?  And this graveyard is a very old famous one in Scotland – St. Andrews Cathedral.  The Cathedral (what’s left of it) dates back to the 12th century.  Very few graves were singular ones, they were mostly family plots with a long series of family buried within.  I tried to find the oldest one but was pressed for time (had to return that rental car before they charged us another day) and only saw sites from the early 1800’s.

I’m pretty sure there are much older ones there considering its age.

Modern cemeteries make me sad but old historic ones draw me right in!  But only in the daytime!  What are your thoughts on graveyards and wandering through them?

    I agree, the old ones like this one or the ones in New Orleans, fascinate me. And I would only visit during the day 😁
