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 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. Witnesses to these attacks ran into the hundreds. There were two exorcisms of the area.
The entity responsible – the ‘Mackenzie Poltergeist’ – has become the best-documented most conclusive paranormal case in history.
This is its story.
