In 1999, I went to these Edinburgh vaults. In the room where it is recommended females should not stand on one particular side I had a visit from one of the residents. I was standing listening to the guide when my leg was kicked and then a searing heat travelled down my leg. No one was behind me, I could see the entrance and no one else had entered and crept up behind me. When we left the vaults I was very pale and shaken but did not want to let on what had happened. I have absolutely no doubt I encountered a ghost that night and the next morning I had a massive bruise on my leg from where I had been kicked.
A few years later I had another frightening encounter with a presence in the flat I was renting so I am really hoping that my next encounter is more pleasant. -Michelle
