Ghost pushed us, Larnach Castle tourist claims


Otago Daily Times said:

Ghostly sightings may have left Cumberland College students spooked, but now a tourist has reported being bullied by a ghost at Larnach Castle.

Sightings of the ghost known as the "Grey Lady" at the college earlier this month have sparked a media frenzy, says the author of a soon-to-be-published book about Dunedin's haunted spots.

HairRaiser Tours owner Andrew Smith said well-known spots included Larnach Castle, the Fortune Theatre, Stafford Gables and a specific area around Moray Pl.

The college was in "lock-down" when he visitedwithother media yesterday.

Students and staff were ntsawere spooked by the latest sightings, he said.

Cool article. Here's the biggest red flag for me. This statement I'm pasting.

What would Mr. Smith have to gain by generating all the media frenzy? Sales for his up and coming book? Or packed HairRaiser tours?? Nothing in the article gave any sort of evidence for the claims. It was simply someone on a Ghost tour whom had an 'incident'. . . . Need I say more?

Larnach Castle has had many sightings over the years but this feels like hype.

Just saying

Agreed! As I stated above, "What would Mr. Smith have to gain by generating all the media frenzy? Sales for his up and coming book? Or packed HairRaiser tours??" I don't believe there is any chance of paranormal events happening there. Nothing more than here-say and a chance to sell a book and pack tours. :tu: Good idea though!

It's the Ghost Radar Apps. Annoys them how daft people are to believe in them.

It is easier to claim it is paranormal than taking the hard route and find out what really happened.
