This magnificent castle is typically medieval, perched atop a rocky crag, giving it an amazing vista of  Scottish hills. But inside the empty halls and narrow streets of Edinburgh, there are the echoes of the dead. At least, that’s what has been reported. Hot spots for specters include the castle’s prison cells, the South Bridge vaults and Mary’s King Close, a disused street used to quarantine and eventually entomb victims of the plague. There are also reports of ghost dogs, a headless drummer, and the bodies of prisoners taken during the French seven-year war and the American War of Independence.

  6. its amazing . i like the website especially 10 most haunted place in the world .

  7. I’m not entirely sure if it was just a slight error on the author’s part or not but the one located in Edinburgh, near the castle…it’s Mary King’s Close, not Mary’s King Close. Sorry but it kind of annoyed me and I would recommend going there, been a few times and actually pretty good (Might be me being biased since I’m from around there haha)

  8. There are many haunted places but there should be a mention of Borley rectory in Essex UK, pendle hill, tower of London, and auschwitz concentration camp, the catacombs which are all said to be very haunted paranormal locations. Personally I think locations such as machu pichu, the colloseum in Rome and also the Vatican could also be haunted places of interest
