Greyfriars Burial Ground was established in 1580 when the kirkyard of St John’s Kirk ran out of space for more graves. The site was chosen due to its long-established religious tradition.
A Franciscan Friary was founded here in 1496 you see, which was the boundaries of Perth. The friary was completely destroyed at the start of the Reformation due to rioting following a very passionate sermon given by John Knox.
With such history, and destruction, is it any surprise that we now see more and more paranormal experiences surfacing from here.
