Good Evening Dear Castledwellers, Ghosthunters, Ghostbusters, Zombies, Witches, Warlocks, Ghouls, Gothlings, Kindred Spirits, Demented Demons, Erotic Exorcists and Fellow Spirited Travelers:
Thank you for your interest in GHOSTour to SCOTLAND, our MAY 8-15, 2011 Haunted Vacation for travelers of all ages. Join us for what is the ultimate spooktacular, unforgettable and week-long adventure to one of the scariest and most notorious locales in the United Kingdom. Hosted by Charles F. Rosenay!!! ("Cryptmaster Chiller Chucky") and TV personality/paranormal investigator Richard Felix ("Most Haunted"), this first-ever GHOSTour of Scotland follows in the haunted footsteps of Mary Queen of Scots and Bonnie Prince Charles. It is, without a doubt, the definitive Week of Horrors!
Few places in the world are as spooky as Scotland. The country's murky past involved clan battles, hundreds of years of war and the siege of grim-looking castles in almost every part of the country. Stories were told and traditions established. There are tales of ghosts, many of whom were said to be the spirits of real people who died in tragic or horrific circumstances, of apparitions that appear at certain times of the night, or certain periods of the year – perhaps when they were murdered, and of strange, eerie sounds that pierce the chilled Scottish air. The hauntings seem to have no set boundaries. Ghosts have been reported on bleak roads, in old theatres and ancient graveyards. Join us as pay some of these spirited sites a visit and judge for yourself. If you are brave enough!
We will explore the Underground City and take the best ghost walks. Some of the places we visit include Greyfriars Church & Cemetery, home of the McZenzie poltergeist; Holly Rood, where Mary Queen of Scot's secretary was stabbed and where the bloodstains still remain; Inverness, for the Highlands Ghostwalk and possibly an encounter with the Lochness Monster; the St Andrews Ghostwalk; and we will spend time at these "must-sees":
Edinburgh Castle. The castle has a long and bloody history, and is reputed to be haunted by many ghosts, including that of a headless drummer boy. His appearance is said to be a warning that the castle is about to be besieged and was first seen in 1650 before Oliver Cromwell and his English army attacked. The castle is now a major tourist venue and is home to the Scottish crown jewels and the Stone of Destiny an ancient rock on which the Kings of Scots were crowned.
Mary King’s Close, Edinburgh. The street leading from Edinburgh Castle to the Palace of Holyroodhouse is known as “The Royal Mile,” with dark and sinister lanes leading off. One, Mary King’s Close, was bricked up during an outbreak of plague and only recently re-opened. Said to be the most haunted place in the Scottish capital, the spirit of a young girl has often been seen. Guided tours will take you to the close, Greyfriars cemetery, where the ghosts of covenanters who were tortured and executed linger, and also to the place where body snatchers Burke and Hare first dug up corpses to sell for use in medical experiments
Combine this with independent late-night séances, visits to graveyards, on-board classic ghost & genre films, a monster mash masquerade ball farewell party and other surprises, and you've got what is one of the most memorable macabre tour in haunted history. Be sure to visit the GHOSTour website for further information, and to read past tour reports.
