About this Event

Ghost Hunt with Haunting Nights at one of Scotland’s most Unforgiving Victorian prisons.

The Old Town Jail Opened in 1847 to replace Stirling’s Tolbooth Gaol said to be The Worst Jail in Britain.

The 18th Century prison is unique and rarely investigated.

Join us for an over night ghost hunt as we go in search for the spirits of the Old Town Jail.

Life at the Jail was horrific, brutal and very isolating for the inmates who found themselves spending time here.

Many would, as a form of punishment, have to spend hours working the “crank machine” a repetitive task of lifting and dropping sand for no purpose other than for punishment.

Other inmates, time spent in the “dark room”, solitary confinement in a tiny chamber with only a small light source some 40 feet above.

By 1888, the County Jail became the Military Detention Barracks for the Scottish Regiment, until decommissioned by the War Office in 1935.

During the mid-20th Century, the jail fell into disrepair until the 1990’s when restoration work was carried out on this derelict site.

Dark Shadows , children crying, sounds of bodies being dragged down corridors and poltergeist activity along with visitors being touched.
