Aberdeen is cited as one of the most haunted cities in Scotland and is also its third largest. People began settling in Aberdeen over 8,000 years ago and it certainly does not disappoint, with a range of reports of ghostly encounters.
First stop should be His Majesty’s Theatre where, in 1942, a stage-hand named Jake was reportedly killed by a stage hoist. Staff report that objects backstage mysteriously move by themselves and occasionally his apparition appears.
Earth hounds are said to roam the churchyard in Mastrick. These creatures have been described as being the size of a rat with a dog-like head and have the feet of mole. They live in the churchyard to feast upon the recently dead and it is claimed that a dead earth hound was ploughed up in front of witnesses.
Early in the twentieth century, the ghostly entity of a naked man was reported to be hammering on the windows of the Palace Hotel for a whole week. When the figure was finally confronted, it is said that he floated away, leaving no trace of any footprints in the freshly fallen snow.
Union Street is the scene where an entity is felt by visitors rather than seen. Many people visiting the area have reported feeling someone or something, grabbing their arms or legs tightly, holding on for some time, before letting go. It is believed to be the spirit of a little girl who died a violent death in the area, some time ago.
Chaplains Court is the location of many mysterious occurrences. Footsteps, a ghostly image of a woman in a rocking chair whilst knitting and the sound of chatter and eating have all been reported. During the 1920s a Reverend, his wife and son lived in No.20 and it is said that the son would wake up quite hysterical, screaming for his mother, claiming that there had been a man sitting on the chair by the fireplace, reading a book.
