    1. I had a paranormal experience here on 4/21/17. My husband and I had just completed our tour, and the docent asked me to read the poem Tor House. When I finished, my husband took a picture of me standing in front of Hawk Tower. In the picture, it looks as though Una is appearing above me on the stairway. My husband took two pictures in rapid succession and she only appears in this one.
