Ghostly figure photographed at Newark Castle

A visitor to the ruins of a Scottish castle managed to capture the image of a mysterious figure.
Paranormal enthusiast Lenny Low had been visiting the ruins of Newark Castle with his partner Ruth Sinclair-Case when he spotted something unusual in one of his photographs.

The unexplained extra can be seen facing away from the camera on the far right of the image.

One of the most interesting things about the photo is that the doorway that the figure appears to be entering, which is now fenced off, was once the castle's storeroom with the kitchen being next door.
"It looks like a woman with her sleeves rolled up in a busy like manner," said Low. "Being 100 yards from the sea its more likely to be a fisherman’s wife - one who spent her time gutting the fish."

Newark Castle itself dates back to the 13th century and was rebuilt several times. The current ruins are what's left of what was constructed under the ownership of David Leslie in the 17th century and the Sandilands family who owned the estate during the 15th century.

These days the ruined stonework is considered to be one of Scotland's most haunted attractions.

Cool. Except i agree, that woman is burly. I see a guy, or maybe a distant relative of Rosie O'Donnell

I'd say it was a person looking thru the off-limits doorway, but you can see the rock wall thru the figure. Weird.

It's an alien ghost left behind by the recent UFO photographed over Loch Ness!

I actually think this is an interesting photo. I'd love to see more shots taken by that camera though. Given the amount of glare around the edges it seems possible that this is an actual person wearing a red skirt. When you blow the image up, the amount of blur seems to be the same for surrounding objects as the figure.
