Mysterious figures of a ghostly nature, unexplained voice recordings, and a general feeling of unease when darkness descends.
It can only be the imposing – yet breathtaking – location that is Kirk O’Shotts, at North Lanarkshire in Scotland.
Looking at the various reports from on-line databases, my colleagues in Scotland, and not forgetting visits personally in 2006, 2011, 2014 & 2015 It seems as if we have possible activity in the form of a male figure, on the road, where the Kirk sits.
Mysterious figures of a ghostly nature, unexplained voice recordings and a general feeling of unease when darkness descends. It can only be the imposing yet breathtaking location that is Kirk O’Shotts, and its surrounding area.
The parish of Shotts bulks large in covenanting history. The Rev. John Livingstone, after Communion on 21st June 1630 preached a sermon on the Monday in the churchyard Which kindled the flame of revival that spread over a large part of Scotland-a flame which even the persecutions of the next generation did not extinguish. But it was a superstitious age, and not many years after the revival we find the kirk-session of Shotts dealing with a number of witches. Indeed, in 1683, thirty men met between the Kirk of Shotts and Cambusnethen, who had forsaken the ordinances of God, and there did debate the authority of Scripture, and thereafter played at football with them [the witches], and after that burned them; this was verified by two ministers, Mr William Violent and Mr John Oliphant, who had certain information of it.
