A magician who visits an ancient castle in Scotland may have captured on camera a ghost from one of the site’s windows.
This past weekend, Drew McAdam allegedly snapped the spooky image when he arrived early for an event taking place at Edinburgh’s Lauriston Castle.
While waiting for a caretaker to turn off the alarm and open the building, he took some photos of the historic building and McAdam was shocked by what he saw when he later looked over the photos.
A figure appearing to wear outdated clothing can clearly be seen standing at a window in one of the photos.
Posting the image and sharing the story on social media, McAdam stated that “I have not edited this photo in any way. It is exactly as it came on the camera.”
He continued to explain that there was no one in the building at the time and, if an unwanted intruder had somehow tried to get inside, it would have triggered a motion sensor alarm.
“To me, it doesn’t look like a ghost, it looks like a real person,” McAdam told a local newspaper.
“I know the house really well, some people said it was a mannequin or something but there’s no mannequins in that place, it’s a museum.”
Furthermore, a 16th-century castle worker said the building had paranormal incidents in the past, particularly sightings of a shadowy figure lurking on the premises.
