1. Abbotsford House
Abbotsford House is one of many beautiful and reported haunted places in Scotland that you have to see to believe. This gorgeous home was designed and built for the owner/occupant poet and novelist, Sir Walter Scott. The home has a history of spooky tales that date back to the experiences of Scott himself. Scott reported hearing construction noises in the middle of the night only to see no evidence or explanation of such racket. Scott believed the disturbance to be that of his recently deceased design assistant. Years later, in 1832, Scott is reported to have died of exhaustion in the home. Visitors to the property have reported seeing Scott's ghostly image watching from a dining room window.
