Sawney Bean

Boat Ride at the Edinburgh Dungeon

**Sawney Bean is closed from 6 - 26th November while we build a new cannibal cave.**

Well done! You've found the Bean Family. Unfortunately, it's been a while since they last ate and you look delicious. Find yourself creeping through the clan’s foul smelling lair and discover the leftovers of lost travellers as the hunters become the hunted…! Will you escape, or become the cannibal's next fresh meat?

What you'll learn

  • Are Cannibals house cave proud?
  • What would they like to pickle?
  • Were the King's men successful in catching Sawney Bean?
