This one comes all the way from Scotland. The old country has more than it's fair share of ghost tales and the like. This is just one of many!

Although only ruins remain of the village of Lawers in Scotland, the site has been put up for sale. However, the offer comes with a warning: The village has allegedly been cursed by the Lady of Lawers.
The Lady, who was a soothsayer from the 17th century, reportedly cursed an ash tree. She was also buried next to the tree after her death. A farmer by the name of John Campbell cut down the cursed tree in 1895 and was gored by his own bull soon afterward. He died from his injuries, and a neighbor who tried to help him later went insane and was taken to a mental institution. A horse that was used to drag the tree away also died without apparent cause.
Sightings of a female ghost continue at the site, and a lot of visitors are convinced it is the Lady herself haunting the ruins.
Despite having a bad reputation and history, the place looks very peaceful to me. Not saying I'd spend the night there or anything, ya understand.
Coffee inside this morning. The flooding rains might be back!
