If I squint a bit (Well, a lot actually) it looks like there's a plant in the corner.

I'm not sure if it's even there, I'd like to say it's my eye sight that's the problem but the picture is just bad quality.

What, are they mad! 

And what about the woman looking out the window, did she not see anything,?Obviously something more interesting outside.

Mystery solved, they got hit by the gas:

Quote

Close ran the nearest of any to the old Nor Loch, a stagnant and highly polluted marsh; biogas escaping into the close and creating eerie lights may have been the cause for these rumours of spirit hauntings.[5] It is also said that the gas escaping into the closes was known to cause hallucinations.[6]

Is there supposed to be an apparition hiding in the picture ? .i think it must have gone for a coffee break.

This is certainly one of the less impressive ghost photos I've seen. But then again badly deformed images would likely be more common than well formed images for semi-materializing entities. Also an out-right hoax would likely have shown something better. Also the original may ne a little more impressive than this screen shot.

That's clearly a Shinobi-bot 3000i with the 14Xe light bending armor package.

It looks to me like a Victorian woman, age 25 or 30 ish, wearing a full-length dark blue or black smudge on the lens.

Total garbage, looks like peeling wallpaper, or a coat on a hook. I wish the idiots who take pictures like this and claim them to be "great evidence" would go back to the site and take follow-up pics and learn something before stupidly spouting "GHOST1!!1"

Would be nice to see a picture of this in the daytime for sure.

I believe much is underground, so would make no difference. It is open to the public, the last tour is 9.30. 

What they should have done was take more photos. Actually no, what they should have done was keep walking as they have captured nothing.

The place is filled with hanging clothing and nooks and grannies,

In the photo in the op the woman is looking through one of the observation windows, like the one in the picture above. 

This has got to be one of the worse claims of a ghost sighting i have seen in a long while.

Sort of looks like a man leaning against the wall holding two lanterns.

 

Rough sketch

Seeing all those clothes everywhere makes it pretty obvious that it's just some clothes hanging there.

Why are there dirty clothes hanging everywhere in the first place?

its meant to show how people would have hung out their clothes to dry in centuries past...

Its basically a Street..a very narrow one , that has been built over  effectively rendering it underground. 

Image result for st marys close edinburgh

this picture is looking up the street...some of the doors and windows allow you to look in on recreated scenes of ages past...showing the traders, and the plague victims etc. 

Some are still boarded up, or not structurally sound.  

 

Ive been a couple of times. Its quite interesting but we didn't see any ghosts, obviously. I noted the second time I went they'd stopped calling it the Ghost Tour...

I don’t think you needed to specify that it was a rough sketch mate. Lol.

Also, you have a good imagination!

Edit: Now I see it. Clearly a ghost holding a severed rabbits head...

The back of his head is too flat, and his left arm is too long.

No "ghost". Just a misinterpreted image.
