The story of Leith Hall, Scotland.
The first tower of Leith Hall was
built by James Leith in 1650. Throughout the generations, passed down from
father to son, the hall that began as one tower is now one of the finest
examples of chateau-style castles in Scotland. Leith Hall has some of the most
spectacular and beautiful gardens in all of Scotland, however, not only is it a
breath-taking site to see but it is home to eerie tales and bumps in the night.
The Leith family had very strong military
connections and during the Jacobite Rebellion of 1745 until 1746, it was a major
stronghold. During World War I, the Hall was converted to an army hospital.
In 1939, catastrophe hit the Leith family and the
two Lairds were killed within a time span of four months. The Leith Hall was
then left in the hands of Henrietta Leith-Hays. She took care of the entire
property until she decided to give it to the National Trust of Scotland. It has
now been converted into a museum that is open to the public.
What about the ghosts? Well, rumor has it that many
spirits haunt Leith Hall. They roam around the rooms, corridors and even the
exterior grounds. Many have stated that one of the spirits in John Leith. He was
shot in the head during a brawl in an Aberdeen tavern. After the brawl, he was
taken home, where he lied until his death three days later. A ghostly figure has
been seen walking on the stairwell with a bloody bandage around his head.
Other ghosts that have been reported include
children playing and laughing in the Leith bedrooms. Henrietta Leith-Hays,
herself, has been seen walking the corridors and wringing her hands as if
worrying about some unseen someone or something.
If you decide to visit Leith Hall while in
Scotland, you may encounter one of the above-mentioned ghosts. Do not be
alarmed, this is there home until they can cross over.
