Edinburgh Underground haunted Vaults, Edinburgh, Scotland, UK
Nobody knows exactly what these vaults were used for but it's believed they were used around 200 years ago by prostitutes and homeless people. The vaults are said to be one of the most haunted site in Scotland. And has been a ghosts hot spot for many paranormal investigators over the years.
During his visit to Edinburgh, Patrick Zakhm took a guided tour with a group of people to these vaults and heard some of the stories circulating around these underground rooms. And while there he picked up the presence of a ghost in one of these room. Here's his account:
"While visiting the Edinburgh vaults with a group and a guide i picked up the presence of a big guy in one of these rooms that seems to be curious about us. Then i told the tour guide about him and the guide confirmed it by saying "yes, the ghost is that of a heavy man"the same ghost has been felt here before. Then i continued saying he's a big guy with a big heart, like he has the heart of a child. The guide asked me what i meant by that exactly? I said he's innocent, he has an innocent and naive heart, this is what I'm sensing from him. The guide replied" Exactly!..Exactly.that's how he's been described...yes, yes he's friendly".Patrick Zakhm.
Below are some of the ghost experiences that ordinary people have reported while visiting these vaults. one time the tour guide saw a girl around 19 or 20 dressed all in black in the corner of a room just standing there. Another incidence was of scratch mark appearing out of the blue on the arm of a lady while visiting these rooms.
Other people walking down there felt something brushing against them. Another incidence is of a 12 years old young girl with her family listening to the guide talking about ghost experiences people have had in here when all of a sudden the little girl scream at another person to step away from the fire behind him. He apparently was standing in a fire and wasn't aware of that. Nobody saw that fire except the little girl.
One story is of a woman standing in the back of a group of visitors in a room and listening to the guides stories when all of sudden she scream from the top of her lungs and quickly ran hysterically toward the guide and would not leave his side. It took a while to calm her down. And later when she did she explained what happened.She said someone just came all of a sudden and stood in front of her. He was not visible physically but she felt that he was a male with a stinking breath and a whiskey smell was coming from him as well and this fella was breathing in her face.
