Haunted Scotland

Traquair House is very different by night - especially on Hallowe'en

VisitScotland say Scotland is “Probably The Most Haunted
Country in the World” and we’re out to prove it!


In the spirit of the season we’ve resurrected a few auld tales from the Scots Mag archives of ghostly apparitions and seriously strange goings on.

We’ve checked out the best spooky tours looming out of shadows for the Halloween season, too – from Traquair House Historical Ghost Tours to Mostly Ghostly’s new tour of Comlongon Castle, and from Condemned at Mary King’s Close to Edinburgh’s Halloween Ball and Horror Ceilidh.

Scroll down for the very best of Hallowe’en happenings, both past and present.
