New light is being shed on a mysterious network of tunnels and caves carved out of rock underneath Edinburgh. Scientists using radar imaging equipment have discovered the ancient passageways at "Gilmerton Cove" extend much further than originally thought. More chambers have also been uncovered during the research project, BBC Scotland has learned. They caves lie under the former mining village of Gilmerton in the south of Edinburgh. Druids and witchcraft Experts have long been baffled by the origins of the underground passageways and chambers. They include stone benches, tables and even a small chapel hand-carved out of the sandstone. The network has been linked to druids, witchcraft, a gentlemen's drinking den and even Mary Queen of Scots.
