Just the other night, at about four in the morning, I woke up really suddenly. This doesn’t usually happen unless I’m hungry or I need to go to bathroom or whatever, and I felt fine, so I rolled over and tried to go back to sleep. I sleep on a loftbed (basically a bunkbed with no bottom bunk), and there is a sofa under my bunk.
Mary Queen Of Scots
Mary Queen of Scots certainly had reason to feel aggrieved, having had her head chopped off! Her ghost has been spotted in a remarkable number of places and is probably Britain’s most prolific ghost having been seen across the length and breadth of Britain, ranging from Craignethan and Stirling Castles in the north to Bolton Castle and the Talbot Hotel in the South. Mary’s tormentor, Elizabeth I, is also believed to have appeared in ghostly form, dressed in black, in Windsor Castle.
▶ Overtoun Bridge
Overtoun House is a 19th-century country house and estate in West Dunbartonshire, Scotland. It is located on a hill overlooking the River Clyde, 2 kilometres (1.2 mi) north of the village of Milton, and 3 kilometres (1.9 mi) east of the town of Dumbarton. The house was built in the 1860s, and was gifted to the people of Dumbarton in 1938. It was subsequently a maternity hospital, and now houses a Christian centre.
Overtoun Bridge, an arched approach bridge over the Overtoun Burn, has gained media attention because of the unusually large number of dogs that have reportedly leaped to their deaths.

The Black Dogs
Hi! I would really like to have this post submitted anonymously, if that’s okay.
When my mum was a teenager, she moved up to live in the west of Scotland. She had a friend who lived about ten miles away from where we live now, in a small-ish town that was flanked on all sides by forests, like a lot of towns in the area are. They used to go for walks together in the forest around her house and nothing out of the ordinary ever happened, until one evening when they were about nineteen.
▶ The Ghosts of Edinburgh Castle
Edinburgh Castle is reputed to be one of the most haunted spots in Scotland. And Edinburgh itself has been called the most haunted city in all of Europe. On various occasions, visitors to the castle have reported a phantom piper, a headless drummer, the spirits of French prisoners from the Seven Years War and colonial prisoners from the American Revolutionary War - even the ghost of a dog wandering in the grounds’ dog cemetery.
The castle (you can get a tour here) standing magnificently between sea and hills, is a historical fortress, parts of which are more than 900 years old. The cells of its ancient dungeon, the site of uncounted deaths, could very well be an eternal place of unrest for numerous spirits. Other areas of Edinburgh also have ghostly reputations: the subterranean vaults of South Bridge and a disused street called Mary Kings Close where victims of the Black Death plague were sealed up to die.
Any of my followers from Ireland, Scotland, Wales or England?

▶ Dark Men
The Fear Dorcha, or Dark Men of Dreams, tend to prey on the sleeping psyche of women. The details of individual dreams will differ, but the fundamental aspect of the Dark Man varies little. He is the figure on the edge - the lurker, the stalker, the intruder. Shrouded in darkness and shadow, always just out of reach for identifiable details to be distinguished, but always close enough to threaten.
Grims or Kegrims are animal spirits that most frequently inhabit churches and burial grounds. Though their appearance may alarm the unwary, their presence may be there by device as it is their intention to protect the hallowed ground and not to defile it. It has been commented that as the oldest churches were being built, or before the first body was consigned to a necropolis, an animal was sacrificed and buried in the foundations. It was thus believed that its spirit would rise and protect the grounds from evil and wrongdoers. Alternatively it was believed that the first body to be interred in a graveyard would be claimed by the Devil. Therefore to spare a human whatever torment or servitude lay in store, the carcass of an animal would instead be buried first. Some church spirits however were not invited and not welcome. Such entities were often assumed not to be the actual spirits of animals but instead were Demons or the souls of dead Malefactors that had assumed the guise of a natural creature. Some of these evil spirits proved very difficult to exorcise or remove. In Wales such devilish spirits were most prone to take the form of horrendous black-skinned pigs, but there has been a considerable variety of strange creatures reported haunting hallowed grounds.
▶ Alien Big Cats In Ireland and Britain
Phantom cats, also known as Alien Big Cats (ABCs), are large felines, such as jaguars or cougars, which have been purported to appear in regions outside their indigenous range. Sightings, tracks and predation have been reported in a number of countries and states including Ireland, Britain, New Zealand, Australia, Finland, Denmark, Eastern United States, Hawaii and Luxembourg.
Also known as: Tarans, Spunks, Pisgies, Souls, Soullh, Sowlth.
Appearing as ethereal waifs, disembodied lights or as white moths, Spunkies are believed to be the wandering souls of children who have died before being baptised. As they have not formally been given a name in the eyes of God, and as they did not have chance to be rid of Original Sin (the sin committed by Adam and Eve, said by the Catholic Church to be inherited by everybody at birth and only rid through the sacrament of Baptism), these dead children do not appear in Saint Peter’s ledger and cannot gain entry into Heaven. Instead they are doomed to wander the earth until Judgement Day. Spunkies do not seem to intend any harm to living human beings and may only approach them out of loneliness, or the hope that they may be given a name that will grant them rest. At sea however, where the Spunkies can also appear, they have been blamed for the loss of lives and boats. Mistaking their luminescence for landing lights, sea-faring vessels were said to have headed towards the lonesome Spunkies, only to be torn apart upon the reefs.
