Folklore Friday - The Ghosts of Culloden
The Battle of Culloden was bloody and ferocious, and left behind many ghostly spirits. It was the final battle to take place on British soil, and was over in just under an hour, as the weary, tired and hungry Jacobite soldiers succumbed to the power of their opposition.
is rumored that 'anniversary ghosts' return to haunt the battlefield
on 16 April, making distinct battle cries, and the unmistakable clashes
of swords echo across the moor. Visions of ghosts have also been seen
near the graves of fallen Jacobites, including a tartan-clad solider
lying injured on the ground.
It's also believed that birds never sing around the exact site of the battle.
