Haunted Scotland conducted live audio sessions as part of an overnight Investigation into Jedburgh Castle Jail in the Borders. The Echovox application system was used for these sessions, in accordance to the structured working hypothesis as constructed by Ryan O’Neill, through 22 months of intense research using the aforementioned set-up.
The ancient Restenneth Priory, by Forfar, is believed to have been founded by the king of the Picts around 715AD. The Pictish King was said to have sent for an Abbot to ask for instruction in the Christian faith, and also for builders who could build in the Roman style of stone, which was unheard of in this period.
However, the base of the tower is said to be closer to 11th Century, which would suggest that the ground has always had a spiritual connection, with rebuilding taking place throughout the ages. Either way, this priory is one of the very earliest stone buildings in Scotland.
Rarely is the case that we will not return to a location for updated material, try new techniques, and present it all to the visitors of the Haunted Scotland website. We find this keeps material up to date, interest in our stunning Scottish locations high, and that little possibility of further mysterious activity to add to the in-depth files we already possess.
This was the case with Balavird Castle, which was visited this past Thursday (12/02)
Deal Castle was built on the orders of Henry VIII as an artillery fortress as part of a chain of such forts to defend the downs from the threat of invasion from the Catholic alliance of France and Spain during the mid-16th century.
It is one of the most impressive of the Device Forts being built by Henry VIII between 1539 and 1540 as an artillery fortress to counter the threat of invasion from Catholic France and Spain. It is shaped like a Tudor rose, being perfectly symmetrical, with a low, circular keep at its centre. Around the circumference of the keep are six bastions, as opposed to the five of Sandown and Walmer, with a further series of six bastions in the curtain wall, one of which serves as the gatehouse.
As I stood in this area of Huntingtower Castle [photo left], I began to feel very cold. I soaked up the atmosphere, opened my mind to the possibilities and then…..I feel a sensation of icy coldness creeping up my arms, which then manifested as a pins and needles sensation.
This stayed with me for a few seconds, I then began to walk the room, asking out for any presence to walk with me.
