Welcome to the home of Mostly Ghostly Investigations – Dumfries and Galloway’s first paranormal team and creators of the Dumfries Ghost Walk, Haunted Theatre Tour and exciting new roadtrip – Haunted Highways Tour!
Please take time to explore our fabulously re-designed website, which includes a host of handy new features; search box, home page contact form and Twitter feed. You’ll find plenty of information on our investigations, walks and tours with more new content on its way.
As our name suggests, Mostly Ghostly are primarily interested in all things ghost, spirit and ‘entity’ related, however we welcome reports of UFO sightings, weird and wonderful creatures and any other fascinating aspects of the paranormal and supernatural that people wish to share with the team.
Our entirely self-funded project consists of four people from a variety of backgrounds and beliefs, united by our close friendships and determination to explore and evidence the unknown. Now in our fifth year as paranormal investigators, we have all experienced something, both personally and collectively, that we cannot find a current explanation for.
We keep our investigation formats simple, using a range of modern and traditional methods that are less prone to environmental influences and pride ourselves in keeping an informed, open mind and not becoming overwhelmed with gimmicks and gadgets. We recognise the importance of eliminating as many physical, psychological and environmental factors as possible and when reaching a conclusion, draw from our own knowledge and understanding as well as the invaluable expertise of others.
Following an initial ghost story appeal through the local papers in October 2007 and a year of research and preparation, we officially launched at Scotland’s oldest working Theatre, the Theatre Royal in Dumfries, on 31st October 2008. Since then, we have investigated many diverse and exciting locations including; Greenlaw Mansion in Castle Douglas, Amisfield House and Tower, Brougham Hall in Penrith, Jedburgh Jail and the nerve-shredding Pittenweem Clock Tower. Following an incredible couple of years developing and launching two groundbreaking tours for our town, the Dumfries Ghost Walk and Dumfries Haunted Theatre Tour, 2012 sees a focus on promoting these tours as well as a return to our first love – paranormal investigations. Collecting evidence of paranormal activity and all that goes with it has always been our top priority and we are delighted to be compiling a set of thrilling new challenges for the year ahead!
We are keen to keep the public informed through talks, presentations, the media and of course, our new website. Kathleen continues to write her regular paranormal column for Dumfries and Galloway Life Magazine which won ‘Scottish Magazine of the Year 2009’ and was recently awarded a further accolade of ‘Scottish Consumer Magazine of the Year 2011′. To celebrate the magazine’s 50th issue, Kathleen wrote a feature on 50 of the region’s most haunted locations.
In a relatively short time, Mostly Ghostly has become an established name both in Dumfries and Galloway as well as further afield. We are keen to highlight our profile both around the region and beyond so that anyone who wishes to arrange an investigation or has a story to tell knows exactly who to contact and how to go about it.
