THE SPOOKY face of a ghost has appeared in a photo taken at a “haunted” museum.

 

The spine-chilling picture shows what appears to be a person wearing a collar watching over a stone carved with Christian symbols.

 

The picture was taken at the West Highland Museum in Fort William, where it is rumoured the spectre of a former staff member roams the halls.

 

Ghost fans who upload sightings to the Paranormal Database website report that the ghost of curator Edith MacGregor, who died in the 1960s, can even be heard tapping away at a spectral typewriter in one of the upstairs rooms.

 

The picture was taken by Dundee Warden, an American tourist who was visiting Scotland in September.

Dundee, from Montana, said: “In my opinion, I do believe this is a ghost.

 

“The day I toured the museum I felt as if someone was tagging along with me. The energy felt like an invisible magnet or weight pulling me in a kind of slower motion.”

 

She added: “For what it is worth, my feeling is that this ghost is from the 15th or 16th century wearing a ruffled collar.”

The picture was uploaded to Facebook by her friend Margaret Robertson, and has attracted many comments from both believers and sceptics.

 

Rachel Taylor said: “The ghost has been reported by both staff and visitors and is a friendly presence.”

 

Elaine Stoddart added: “I live in Fort William and have heard many stories of the museum being haunted. You never know!”

 

However, many were quick to dismiss the ghost theory and claimed instead it was a reflection in the glass.

 

Gary Thompson said: “It’s not a ghost, it’s a reflection!”

 

John McGuire said: “You’ve been watching too much Casper.”
