Restless Spirits Patrol This Graveyard
In Edinburgh, there is a graveyard that has seen its fair share of legends. It is the Greyfriars Kirkyard and it is well-known for the Greyfriars Bobby, which was a loyal dog that guarded his master’s grave until the dog’s death. There is a statue of the dog at the gate to the graveyard now. However, the dog is also known for something other than a loyal dog. It is known for being a very haunted place.
One restless spirit said to reside at the cemetery is George Mackenzie, who was buried in the graveyard in 1691. The apparition is now called the Mackenzie Poltergeist, and legend has it that those who come in contact with him end up with bruising, bites and cuts.
The cemetery has also been the site of a number of deaths, and those who take its tours often say that they feel someone watching them, and several spirits have been seen walking through the graveyard at night.
Needless to say, this cemetery is one for those who are brave and it is not for the faint of heart. Lest you enter the cemetery at night and come across George Mackenzie, who will leave you with bruises and cuts, memories of your visit to the haunted cemetery of Greyfriars Kirkyard.
