Overview

Greyfrair's Cemetery in Edinburgh has a centuries old reputation for being haunted. Its gruesome history includes use as a mass prison, headstone removal, witchcraft, bodysnatching, desecration, corpse dumping and live burial.

In 1998, something new and inexplicable began occurring in the graveyard. Visitors encountered 'cold spots', strange smells and banging noises. They found themselves overcome by nausea, or cut and bruised by something they could not see. Over the space of two years, twenty-four people were knocked unconscious. Homes next to the graveyard wall became plagued by crockery smashing, objects moving and unidentified laughter. Witnesses to these attacks ran into the hundreds. There were two exorcisms of the area. Both failed.

The section of Greyfriars where the attacks occurred is now chained shut. The entity responsible has been named the 'Mackenzie Poltergeist'. It has become one of the best-documented and most conclusive paranormal cases in history.

The Poltergeist is still growing stronger.

This is its story.

Anonymous More than 1 year ago
It's easy to dismiss ghost stories as the product of overactive imaginations, but perhaps it's made all the more easier by our hope and desire to not contemplate the paranormal. After all, it's hard to believe in ghost during noise and bustle of daylight hours. This is exactly what this book acknowledges before telling the story characters like Ben and David whom we can't help but love, and their unsettling experiences in Scotland's Greyfriar's Cemetery. If it doesn't absolutely shatter our doubts about the existence of the paranormal, this book threatens to challenge what we believe, or rather what we don't believe in, and replace it with a morbid curiosity of what really goes on at Greyfriar's, and elsewhere were the paranormal turns up. If only Scotland was a bus ride away.
