  1. I would love to give this property a walk through. I am a keen paranormal seeker but never had a chance to do it. I have not long for this world and this would be the greatest opportunity of my life to ask permission to do this. I am asking permission to enter use property. I hope u find this in great reguard.
    Thank you.

  2. I have been to the House of Binns and though I was able to visit the esteemed house there was a definitive lack of paranormal activity which made the journey and the day all the more disappointing. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
