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. First off, this is easy to confuse with the notorious Greyfriars Kirkyard in Edinburgh, with its world-famous activity from within the Covenanter’s prison area. This specific one I speak of here is based in the City of Perth.

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.
The capital of Scotland, is under the spotlight again here at Haunted Scotland, with a photograph passed to us from a student of photography at a West Lothian College. Sheena Severn, has kindly allowed the image to be displayed here for the public to look at.
I will let her tell you, in her own words, the background…..
They say that animals are more in tune with any possible paranormal occurrences that transpire in the environment. One such instance, which is an off-shoot from the sessions we carried out at Greyfriars, was the rather peculiar case of a screaming squirrel, or at least one which seemed to be in a bit of distress.
