Legend has it that Grassmarket’s White Hart Inn is the most haunted pub in Edinburgh, and this picture definitely builds on its reputation.
A recent photo taken by Aussie tourists in the pub shows a blurred apparition near the main bar of the spooky venue. Staff of the White Hart Inn believe it to be the ghost of a woman wearing a red dress. The legend of the woman is that she was a prostitute who frequented the bar in the 1800’s, and was killed on the premises.
The manager of the Inn, Michael Johnson, who is also a skeptic by nature, remembers the night approximately 8 weeks ago, when the Australian family were there.
He said: “They were about the second last group to leave and they pulled on my shirt and said ‘look at this’.
“They’d looked through the photos and seen something a bit strange. She pulled it up on us and that’s when I knew it wasn’t a hoax. She couldn’t have done any computer graphics because she was still in the pub.”
The White Hart in is the oldest pub in Edinburgh, dating back to 1516.
