Fraserburgh’s Lighthouse Museum held a highly successful Halloween event last weekend, taking tour groups on a search for the ghosts of Kinnaird Head.

Fully booked, three brave tour groups were taken on the special tour on a particularly spooky night.

Mike Chandler, who attended the tour, reports: “On a stormy night with a hazy moon casting weird shadows, three groups carrying lanterns were led ‘round the lighthouse, the keepers cottages and the Wine Tower by Gary Campbell, Michael Strachen and Michael Cruikshank.

“At various points on the way we were told of the ghosts that haunt the museum, told true tales about disappearing lighthouse keepers and given poetry readings about scary lighthouse happenings.

“As the groups moved from building to building, several people on the tour swore that they has seen one of the ghosts dressed in a cloak disappearing into doorways and some of us could hear the distant sound of the pipes as the sea crashed on the rocks below the Wine House.

“If you want to hear those stories and experience a ghostly tour ‘round Kinnaird Head – you will have to wait ‘til next Halloween!

“On returning to the museum members of the Fraserburgh Junior Arts Society performed a short play about the ghost of William Foster.

“And to warm us up, a bowl of pumpkin soup and a hot sausage in a roll was provided by the cafe.”
