Haunted Hailes Castle In Pictures.
Nestled within the countryside of East Lothian – away from the more well-known Edinburgh haunted hot-spots – we have a stunning small location.
Many people miss Hailes Castle completely on their visit to Scotland, or underestimate its beauty along with that all too familiar mix of paranormal activity.
This may not be underground Edinburgh, or the grandeur of Glamis Castle, but make no mistake, the witness testimonies of ghostly behaviour are every bit as significant and of great interest.
Is this Freddy Jacksons Ghost?
Air Mechanic Freddy Jackson met his untimely death in 1919. He was killed in a rather gruesome accident, walking into an aeroplane propeller.
This intriguing photograph – taken in 1919 – was first published by Sir Victor Goddard, a retired R.A.F. officer around 1975.
The photograph is of a group portrait of Goddard’s squadron, which had served in World War I aboard the HMS Daedalus. This was the final photograph before they were to be disbanded.
