Scotland has a wealth of haunted castles, houses, hotels and graveyards. Here is one that you might like to visit . . . if you are brave enough!!

Haunted Place : Greyfriars Kirkyard

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.
