DescriptionCombining history, humor and horror, you walk will end inside the Covenanter’s Prison, a locked section of a 16th-century walled cemetery. This is the lair of the 'McKenzie Poltergeist', which is now the best-documented paranormal case in history. As well as receiving massive national and international television and newspaper coverage, the McKenzie Poltergeist is the subject of an acclaimed book, 'The Ghost That Haunted Itself', of which signed copies will be available after the tour. Since your tour company has the only access to the prison, they have been able to record all of the 'attacks' on visitors there. So far there have been over 900, including 180 people who have been knocked unconscious. Researched and designed by best-selling historical author and award winning novelist J A Henderson, these walks combine the weirdest stories, wickedest humor, and the wildest history.
