Six Haunted Scottish Castles
Scotland’s blessed – due to it’s extensive history – to be home to hundreds of Castles ranging from ancient ruins to stately homes and tourist attractions.
More so, we have an abundance of alleged hauntings, ghostly sightings and strange unexplainable phenomena within these national treasures.
Let’s look at six haunted Scottish castles that you can freely visit at any time…

Culross Abbey is a fine example of a former Cistercian Abbey in Culross. It was headed by the Abbot or Commendator of Culross.
It’s still used as the local parish church by the Church of Scotland.

Falkland Palace in Fife, Scotland, is a royal palace of the once Scottish Royalty. Today it’s under the stewardship of the Marquis of Bute, who delegates most of his duties to the National Trust for Scotland.

Linlithgow Palace Haunting Video
Linlithgow Palace was one of the main residences for Scotland’s monarchs from the 15th century.
However, after Scotland’s monarchs left for England in 1603, the palace was scarcely used, and then was subject to a burn out in 1746.
Situated 15 miles from the capital city of Edinburgh, Scotland, in a strategic supply line between Stirling Castle & Edinburgh Castle.
Queen Margaret’s Tower at the top of one of the stair towers, is said to be haunted by Mary of Guise, waiting for the return of her husband, James V.

Real Paranormal Activity
There’s a fine line walked while sorting through the plethora of material gathered from witnesses and old accounts from times gone by.
Those who work within the paranormal genre, whether this be researchers, Investigators or observer, must ensure they only deal with the
facts of each and every case.
But can we go too far and lose out on real paranormal activity and raw experiences?

Paranormal Activity Dysart
The build up of negative energy seemed enough to trigger an almighty case of paranormal activity.
Looking back, the house was already subject to unusual occurrences, not for the first time would I come home – I lived alone – to find the TV on when I knew it was turned off before going to work.

The Edinburgh Vaults
The Edinburgh Vaults – or South Bridge Vaults – are a series of chambers formed in the nineteen arches of the South Bridge in Edinburgh, Scotland, which was completed in 1788.
For around 30 years, The Edinburgh Vaults were used to house taverns, cobblers and other tradesmen.
It was a storage space for illicit material, reportedly including the bodies of people killed by serial killers Burke and Hare for medical experiments.

The Spirits of Christmas
As we all make those final preparations for the festive period, ready to indulge in The Spirits of Christmas, I thought it would be interesting to look at a different type of Christmas spirit.
Those who departed the physical, yet, still make themselves known during this time in Scotland.
There is no special time of day – or year – for activity of a spooky nature to transpire.
Paranormal activity will happen when it happens if it happens at all.
This is something I am careful to explain to people who join any event or public gathering that I’m working on.
