This historic stone cottage is now a museum, but was formerly built in the early nineteenth century by a family of emigrants. After being abandoned for a period of time, a middle class family moved in, but fled after reporting apparitions, disembodied footsteps and strange fires.

  2. I’m Tommy and I slept overnight by the house in a sleeping bag. I awoke probably around 3:00am and a man was hovering with an old fashioned barber’s razor in his hand. He kept crying Edgar and then in a nasty tone the word Quilly threw the rock. The apparition then burst into fire and vanished.
