It is no coincidence that in Edinburgh you can take a course in Parapsychology. The Scottish capital is famously haunted and there have been countless sightings of ghosts and phantoms.
Ghost Tour of Edinburgh
Wars, murders, witch burnings, and many other gruesome periods throughout Edinburgh's history have made it a notoriously haunted city.
