Jenny and Annie visit Edinburgh for this Samhain special, in search of a haunted Halloween. We explore the life and legend of Bloody George MacKenzie, a notorious figure in Scottish history. What was the Covenanter’s Prison, and why do people say that spirits could still haunt it to this day? What draws so many people to this famous Scottish graveyard, and what scares so many away?

We learn about how Greyfriars Kirkyard in Scotland’s capital city became a centre for paranormal tourism. We discuss plague, political turmoil, punishments, and the poltergeist lore that surrounds this major Edinburgh landmark.

Does Jenny really believe she was haunted by the ghost of Bloody MacKenzie?
