This week, we’re supposed to chat about a time we went in a haunted house. I’ve done that a few times since I always seek out those things when I travel as well as in my hometown. Since I just got back from Scotland, I thought I’d share my story about Mary King’s Close in Edinburgh. It’s supposed to be very haunted. Many people lived and died in the tenements of Old Town Edinburgh over the centuries.
This particular close is supposedly haunted by a little girl and some plague victims as well as some murdered souls. There are stories of ghost sightings and the place has been on various ghost hunting shows who usually find “something”.
We weren’t allowed to take photos down there but did buy a souvenir photo of us in one of the streets underground. See here if you want to see what the closes look like.
I usually have some spiritual experience at these kind of places but this time I only had one little thing. We walked into this one room that felt noticeably cooler to me as soon as we entered. In a few moments, the guide led us toward another room and he said that it was where a lot of sightings of the little girl were. Now, we were underground with no wind and no windows. How was it that this one particular place was colder to me? Hmmm. Something to mull over.
