Haunted Ragged School Scotland

The Ragged School in Scotland is believed to be haunted by restless spirits from its past. Located next to Edinburgh Castle this school, which once housed Scotland's most destitute children, has been investigated by Ghost Hunters International and other groups dedicated to the paranormal.

It was Thomas Guthrie who envisioned the Ragged School. His idea was to bring in youths from the street who were impoverished and thus resorted to begging as a means of life. The school, established in 1847, provided children with free shelter, food, clothing and an education. Its concept quickly spread and other Ragged schools opened throughout the UK.

The owner of the building claims that something eerie is definitely going on and has himself heard the sound of children giggling on unoccupied floors. Ghost Finders Scotland did an investigation at this location had a number of paranormal incidents occur.

I am looking forward to seeing what Ghost Hunters International has found, if anything.
