Haunts in Ireland and Scotland

Postby megsy » Sat May 04, 2013 1:27 pm

I am off over seas at the end of next month. Ireland, Scotland, England and then a pop across to France, Germany, Switzerland and Rome.

My dream has always been to see the castles of my ancestors and to walk along Hadrian's Wall - so after many years of dreaming, I am finally doing it. 32 days and most of it will be exploring/visiting as many haunted places as I can :cheesy: We are doing it all ourselves, driving around, and only have half of the accommodation booked - the rest we will wing it and stop where ever the car leads us.

Poor hubby is along for the ride (America is his dream, so he gets that one next)

So, here is what my list reads.

Ireland
Duckets Grove Castle
Kilkenny Castle (staying across the river from here - a 2 minute walk over a bridge)
Blarney Castle
Blackrock Castle
Charles Fort
Ross Castle
Ardfert Cathedral and the ruins of Teampall na Hoe
Cahir castle
King Johns Castle
Leap Castle
Ennis friary and Abbey
Bunratty Castle
Knappogue castle (we have a medieval banquet booked here - full theatre style night)
Athenry Castle
Clinmacnoise (medieval monastery)
Belleek castle
Darver castle
Newgrange
Dublin castle
Trim castle
Kilmainham Goal
Malahide castle
Saint Michans Church
Glasnevin Cemetry'
Skyrne castle
Drimnaugh Castle
Scotland
Edinburgh vaults
Edinburgh Castle
Greyfriars Cemetry
Culloden Moor (battlefield)
Provast Skene's House
St Machar (and cemetery)
Huntly Castle
Lock Ness
Hadrians Wall
St Peters cathedral
Stonehenge
and London
The usual touristy spots here - London Tower, Westminster Abbey and Highgate Cemetery
Going to visit Jack the Rippers haunts at Whitechapel and we have a Haunted London Ghost tour booked as well.

In Europe, it will mainly be just sight seeing/driving - the only places I want to see is the Black Forest and Neuschwanstein Castle in Germany and Ancient Rome spots, we have three days in France so hubby wants to see the Eiffel tower, the Louvre, Champs Elysees and Notre Dame etc.

So - any input and other suggestions are REALLY welcome :smile: .

I'm bacccckkkkkkk :yes:

Wow - what an amazing time.

I have over 4000 photos though (don't panic, not going to crash the site with an overload!!)
Does anyone know how I can upload some pics without using photobucket? I am so old fashion with this stuff :giggle: Photobucket just takes forever.

Welcome back :clap:
You need to reduce the photo size to upload direct to the site. I can't remember exactly what the size is set at so will check after work today. I think it is no more than 800 pixel by 800 pixel and no more than about 500kb in size. You can resize using a program called Easy Thumbnails which is free to download and use and does an excellent job of batch resizing, (make sure you save into another file so you don't write over the original) The settings are easy to use and set up and you just need to make sure you set the save path for each file you work on so you don't loose them any where.
Hope that is some help :grin:

Thanks Dellycat, will check it out. Appreciate the help :yesmaster:

I had the most amazing time. Sooo many castes and places with old energies and I even had the chance to 'meet' a few new people. :hi:

Will check out the website and post some pics and tell some stories.

OK - dumb computer operator question again :declare: I downloaded that website and it's great, it cropps them down to size etc - um, now how do I get them on here? I have tried all the copy/paste tricks I know and they just don't want to co-operate :exhausted:

I have some awesome pics and cant share them :notworking:

When you have the post box or post reply box open and have typed your message about the photo or a reply and posting a follow on photo, scroll down to the submit button. Just below that you will see two tabs side by side, one on the left says options, the one on the right says upload attachments. You open the upload attachments tab and two boxes will show, one for upload attachment and one for add comment to the attachment (photo description). In the upload attachment box there is a button for browse which opens a window to your computer. You go to the folder where your adjusted images are, select your image and click open, click on upload file and it uploads. You can only upload one photo at a time so just keep doing that until you are done.

Once each file is uploaded, they appear as a text link in a box above the submit button, Make sure your curser is in the right spot in your post (each time) like below the text you want to put the picture with and then click on the place in line button below the uploaded image. This way you can control where pictures are in a post. If you don't click that box and just submit the picture, it will appear at the bottom of any text and all other images will just dump there as well. Do the above and you can put stories with each picture.
If you upload the wrong picture, you can delete it from the same box as well.

sorry about the highlights, just trying to break the instructions down for easy glance while following them.
Hope that helps :cheesy:

Delly - you are a gem.
Lets see if I can do it now .....

OK,
I will do these in alpha order - not the order we did them in !

Abbeyglen Castle in Clifden Ireland. We stayed here the night (8th night into trip) and it is the site of my first encounter. I had my suitcase open and the lid was leaning on the TV cabinet, just slightly to the right of the foot of the bed. Every place we had stayed had a kettle (I am fond of my dandelion tea) and I was a bit upset that I couldn't have a calming brew at the end of the long day. That night, I was woken up by a presence at the foot of the bed, I half sat up and saw a dark figure standing in front of my suitcase, just facing it and looking at it. It then turned, and vanished back towards the door to the room where it came from. I went back to sleep and net morning told my husband what had happened. I said I think the suitcase was in his way and I somehow blocked his path. I looked out the window just past the TV cabinet and a lovely path led through some thicket. We then went down and had our breakfast and returning to the room, I had a thought come to me as soon as I entered the room. I went to the TV cabinet and lowered the lid to the suitcase and found a compartment - with a slide out tray - with a kettle. It was then clear that I hadn't blocked his way, he was showing me where the kettle was.

Did a ghost tour through Edinburgh and ended here. Amazing spot. The whole way through I felt someone follow us just out of sight and I stayed at the back of the group and kept looking behind. The tour guide actually confirmed that lots of people have the same feeling.

Fantastic photos and I love the friendly helpful ghost :grin:
I love the old castles and churches found in the UK, so much history there and you can feel it when you visit them.

Great photos, I feel exhausted from the journey :exhausted: Nah they were excellent :cheesy:
I come from near Stonehenge, it is fantastic to see up close though now I think they have a lot of it fenced off.

In Wales there are the remains of a castle on a farm, below the ruins are under ground tunnels that are still there. You take a torch or they hire you one (or did back when I went there 30 yrs ago) they didn't charge to go into the castle area either. I didn't get a torch, I went down the steps to the tunnels until I ran out of sunlight and that was it... couldn't take another step and doubt that would have been different with a torch :lol:
The castle was Carreg Cennen, always remembered it's name because I had trouble saying it.
http://www.walesinstyle.com/things_to_do/carmarthenshire/carreg_cennen_castle.aspx
I found out about it from family friends I was staying with a few kilometers away in Llandeilo, a picnic lunch was made and enjoyed sitting at the back of the castle looking out over the view.

Megsy, if you went to every castle and or castle ruin it would take you all year :lol: there are just so many of them along with old stately homes that are open to the public.
I saw a few fantastic places when there, Wales has some awesome big castles that are still complete except for floors in them. Also saw some ruins in Denby? I think it was. I also went to Lincolnshire castle which is amazing and Leeds castle which is in Kent. Dover castle is another that has a lot of history and the guide on the tour there was full of information. York is also another place to visit because the city wall is still there that circled the city way back when. That has a feel to it as well along with the York museum which is an old building.
I grew up about 20 or 30km from Stonehenge and we used to go past it a lot when I was a kid when we travelled anywhere because the motorways were not there then.
Oh, I am an empath as well with very strong abilities that annoy the hell out of me :facepalm:

Wow, to live near them all. If I could, I would give up work tomorrow and live over there and just check out EVERY castle, abbey, estate .... sigh, if only :whome:

And as an empathy, you know the very feeling - I was knackered by the arvo, totally drained - but SO worth it. :yes:

The UK is a wonderful place through the eyes of a tourist, I wouldn't want to go live there though. If we won lotto then I would be happy to go there for an extended holiday to do just what you said... visit EVERYTHING :lol:
