“It was a beautiful day when I visited Ruthven Barracks, a place I’ve driven past many a day, but never stopped to appreciate fully. This time I did and I was not disappointed. It was a quiet day, there was no-one else around, so I had the place to myself. After a short walk up the hillside, I reached this historic and prominent ruin, which dominates the local landscape.

History intrigues me, especially here in the Highlands and I’d love to be able to travel back in time (no, this is not Craigh na Dun), just for a day, to see what it was like. 

It was such a quiet, peaceful day, but I still felt a slight sense of eeriness. Perhaps it’s because I was alone and my imagination started running away with me… but it’s not hard to visualise life here as it was, over 250 years ago.

They do say there is ghostly activity here… how amazing would it be, to come back here, just as it’s getting dark…”

So what’s this got to do with getting the girls together? Well, Halloween got me thinking this year and a little bit of research led me to Highland Paranormal, a local group who investigate paranormal activity! I LOVE this! So I met with Liam to find out more… and I wasn’t disappointed. He had many tales to tell and as I’m a firm believer in the ‘other side’, I was intrigued.

This isn’t just about ghost hunting; it’s about the history, the folklore, the people and the locations that can tell us a story or two. What became of these people? Why are they still here? Is there an afterlife? Can any of us really answer that question with 100% conviction? It’s good to think outside the box. Always question things, don’t just accept what we are told…

What you experience doesn’t even need to be spooky, think friendly and heart-warming instead 😉  Don’t assume that everything ghost-related is scary… BOO!

So if you’re looking for something different to do, that gets you together, that takes you out of your comfort zone and gets you laughing, bonding and sharing, why not consider a ghost hunting experience? Wrap up warm, join a group and open your mind, you never know what you might see or hear…

Share the moment, write your story and create memories that will last a lifetime (this one and the next…).

Get in touch to find out more, or to create your own bespoke tour and explore historic buildings and locations. Make a night of it, or an entire weekend! We can tailor it specifically for you. Include a supper, a visit with a medium, an historic tour and so much more. Or stay overnight in a haunted castle… I dare you.

You are limited only by your imagination…

P.S. This experience is NOT limited to a heavily commercialised, ghostly time of year, you can be spooked any time of year!
