The Old Temple Kirk – Seat Of The Knights Templars
This was the principal seat of the Knights Templars in Scotland with a history going back to that of King David I (Reigned April or May 1124 – 24 May 1153)
The earliest reference we have at hand is most likely in a charter of 1175-99. So we can clearly see an estimated timeline of creation with these dates.
In addition, we also find that in 1128, its alleged that the cousin of St Bernard of Clairvaux, Hugues de Payens, met King David I in Scotland. The Order thus established a seat at Balantrodoch, now Temple, Midlothian on the South Esk River.
World Known Sceptical Magician Confirmed The Afterlife Does Exist
Often in circles relating to pseudo-scepticism and blatant cynicism – with regards to paranormal events – we’ve members who are all too happy to name drop individuals as some proof about their rigid belief systems.
Many have even tried to emanate said big names – in search of big dollars and lots of publicity – for their materialist aims in life.
Not forgetting massive fame and media performances to boot.
This actual question was posed to me lately during a meeting, where I was asked what this whole thing entails. In other-words, what is Haunted Scotland’s Raison D’être – ‘reason for being’ – and what is the thrust of the forward movement to be here.
Some seem to think it’s a company, much like the fantastic tour companies that operate in places such as Edinburgh or our friends at History & Horror Tours in Perth. I’m afraid that is rather wide of the mark, and I have no skills in such areas either.
Lately, we have looked at ways to aid people who are using the Echovox System, on their hand-held devices. We have looked at the crucial areas to focus on, and the majority are satisfied that the software is gaining results worth looking into.
The feedback I’m receiving internationally, here at Haunted Scotland, would suggest the device is used by three main groups of people.
So you have the application on your Smart-Phone or PC Tablet and you are ready to rock and roll on location. However, how do you begin you may wonder, and what is the best way to conduct such sessions to get maximum possibility of results.
Like anything in the paranormal world, results are never guaranteed and when they are forthcoming, people rarely agree that such are significant enough.
In yesterdays short article named Does Echovox Work, we spoke about how this application was different from the ghostly fun on android or Iphone applications, that may be purchased through places such as Google Play.
I reassured everyone that we have a good working device that may be used by any researcher or member of the public, with an interest in this type of study.
