10 Pictures of Haunted Places In Scotland
As we know, pictures speak a thousand words and when we view such we invoke our imagination to gain great insights, while also allowing the atmosphere of what’s being portrayed to surround us.
It’s a proven fact that each one of us are unique in the way we gather information.
Some of us prefer to read, while others are more visual with a desire for video or perhaps images.
Let us not forget those of us who like to use our hearing sense, or perhaps we like to feel the information, as strange as that will sound to some.
The following are 10 location shots of Haunted Places in Scotland, to allow you to satisfy the visual aspect of information gathering, what do you feel while viewing them…..
1. Tantallon Castle – East Lothian.
In March 2009, psychology professor Richard Wiseman released a photograph taken at Tantallon Castle, it appeared to show the top half of a man standing behind railings in a wall opening, which would have once been a door into a long gone room.
Various reports of uneasiness are felt from within the pit prison area, whether on the approach or in the area itself. Audio capture of a singing boy was found on one digital device collected by Haunted Scotland. Go In-depth HERE

5. Loch Leven Castle – Kinross.
Loch Leven castle, is allegedly haunted by Mary, Queen of Scots, at the spot where she signed her abdication. However, the veracity of this tale is suspect, as are many of the alleged hauntings by Mary, Queen of Scots, due to the vast quantity throughout Scotland’s locations.
Looking at the rich history of this property – and the surrounding areas – It’s little surprise that a plethora of reports with regards to mysterious apparitions and ghostly energies are frequently shared. Go In-depth HERE

There are, as you can imagine, a few stories of paranormal significance with regards to the location. We have the pink lady who is said to walk between the castle and nearby church at Lady’s Rock.
