The Haunted House / La Casa Stregata

Re-posted ~ Have a SpooOoooOOook-tacular Halloween!

 

There are few countries in the world that are as full of spooky tales of ghosts as Scotland. The first time we saw this abandoned house in Paisley we set our imagination free and started thinking about possible stories. So we imagined it as inhabited by the spirit of the poor deceased Lady Marion who has been former resident on this property. The ghost of Lady Marion has been occasionally spotted wandering through the graveyard surrounding the property. The figure of a monk is often reported to appear at the same window where the Lady "fell off". He’s thought to be her former husband who became a monk after the "accident" occurred, because of the unbearable guilt. Lit candles appear at times at some windows. Around Halloween, these phenomena occur increasingly.

For this art work we have combined quite a few of our Scottish photos. The main house (Territorial Army building) was taken in High Street, Paisley. The tombstones on the left are from Scone Palace, the ones on the right are from Castlehead Church in Paisley. The Celtic cross is from the Isle of Iona. The stair leading to the door are from the chapel near Scone Palace and the monk at the window was shot at a medieval fair in Paisley.
