Noble Friends, Especially Fellow Scots:

My previous post about Culzean Castle and its seven ghosts led me to search
out the Wikipedia site "Reportedly Haunted Locations in Scotland":
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reportedly_haunted_locations_in_Scotland .

It is quite a list, but certainly not comprehensive. On our 2017 visit,
Lady Sarah Sinclair and I stayed at the Millenium Hotel in Glasgow, which
dates from the early 19th century as separate townhouses. There I learned
from the staff that the top floor is reputed to be haunted by the benign
ghost of an elderly lady. (The staff are quite proud of her.) We were on a
different floor, and had no paranormal experiences.

On our 2005 trip to England we did have what may have a strange experience
at Bath Abbey. Our friend and traveling companion Carolyn and I were
sitting in a pew as Lady Sarah took a photo of us (sorry, but we can't post
photos to this discussion board). When I got the pictures developed, there
was a large triangle of light behind our friend's shoulder. It is not a
flaw or processing artifact, as it does not extend beyond the negative to
the adjacent image, and the light is behind the pew and our friend as there
is no bleed. I have been a professional photographer, and can attest that
the image is real, not an in-camera or darkroom mistake. I did a web search
and came up with another photo taken in the same spot from the opposite
direction which also shows a similar blob of light. Granted this could be a
trick of light through the windows, but the photos are very weird. So I
sent a copy to the Abbey's rector and inquired if there were any legends
about a ghost the church. He recommended that I should concentrate on the
spiritual rather than spirits. Good advice, I will allow, but it didn't
answer my question.

Yours Aye,

Mungo Napier, Laird of Mallard Lodge  🦆
