Restenneth Priory In Pictures
The ancient Restenneth Priory, by Forfar, is believed to have been founded by the king of the Picts around 715AD.
Would such deep history from a county – Angus – that’s deemed to be the birthplace of Scotland, transfer into earth energies that spark paranormal activity?
Let’s look at some pictures from Restenneth Priory in this article, with further expansion of our findings in addition material to follow.
1. The Pictish King of 715AD
The Pictish King was said to have sent for an Abbot to ask for instruction in the Christian faith when founding this location, and for builders who could build in the Roman style of stone, which was unheard of in this period.
2. 11th Century Structure
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.
3. The Pictish People Of Scotland
The Picts were a tribal confederation of people who lived in what is today eastern and northern Scotland during the Late Iron Age and Early Medieval periods.
To put that into perspective for you, this was from around 50 BC, right through to around the 7th century.
4. The Spiritual Pictish Carvings
The stone carvings by the Picts also point towards a more esoteric nature, and mimics a lot of similar carvings from likewise indigenous tribes in others areas of the world.
Spirals, serpents, and the like are highly prevalent as an example.
5. Deep Connection To The Earth
The placing of ancient stones – especially in the Angus area – would also suggest they knew something about ley-lines and the earth natural energies, where you will find many religious buildings or élite castle strongholds placed.
6. The Veil To The Spirit World
Could the veil to the spirit world be thinner in these places? And how does Restenneth Priory fit into such a hypothesis.
This is something Haunted Scotland is looking at closely.
