Thistle Knights Tours


Well you have seen the programs on T.V such as Ghost Adventures, Ghost Hunters, Paranormal Witness, Most Haunted. Some good some well not so good. You may have been out on your own investigation again some good some not so good. But what is it like too be a paranormal investigator? well you spend half your time in the dark asking is there any one there? Waiting for the words you long too hear “Is it me you are looking for?” Ok you may not hear those words per-sa but that is what you want is the ghost or what ever it is you are looking for too talk back to you.

The feeling you get when an unexplained sound gets picked up is amazing. But there is more to it than that. For a paranormal investigator has a lot more too do than just sit in an old building looking for movement or listening for sounds. Because they need to know the history of the building, who lived there?, what were their lives like?, Did they die there? They need information on the building and what is was used for. They need to know what type of ghosts they are hunting. Most people do not know that ghosts come in different forms and haunt in different ways. Most people go out in too the dark and just try and get a ghost to talk to them. When the ghost they are looking for might not speak it might just be a presence. So the more information on the building, graveyard or haunted area the investigator has the better for them and the better for them to prove or disprove the ghost. The more information you have the better chance you have of finding the ghost.

Paranormal Investigator is one of the best hobbies in the world not only do you get to spend half your time never knowing what is going to happen one day to the next. You then race home and review all your findings too see if you caught that picture, or if you caught the words “Hello is it me your looking for?” You need to enjoy the dark and enjoy the unknown. Be ready for anything and get ready too feel strange things happening to your body. Then the strange part when you have found something and you put it out on a form or on a paranormal site. People take great fun at times telling you that it is nothing and there is nothing there. Sometimes people will tell you, you picture shopped it. So what is the point? why do you do it? Why spend hours in the dark in old buildings or graveyards? Why do it day after day night after night spend hours going over footage only to find nothing? Then get up and do it all again. Well believe it or not only you can say why. Because to each of us that enjoy the strange world of the paranormal it may mean something different. The reason we do it may follow the same route or even come from the same place. But too each of us it means something different and the feeling we get when we find something.

A paranormal investigator job is not really a job but a life style and it is not just in our life, it is part of our life. You can make some great friends in this hobby and go on some great investigations with them. But it still to you your own world.

You come at your own risk,

Please bring your own torch if need be,  

Here a person is touching a gravestone, and in one of the pictures it may look like the stone is full of energy, but it is just the light of a torch stretched when the camera moved while taking the picture.

This image is from a mausoleum. It may look like there is something ghostly happening on the left side of the image but that is just Frank's jacket being lit by a torch during the camera's 4 second exposure time.

In this image the blue and the green light are clearly reflections from the car's lights, not orbs. Similar reflections occur from all kinds of lights and lamps, not just the sun

 When you suspect that you may have an actual orb or other unexplained (light) phenomenon in your picture, it is often useful to compare that image to others taken in the same situation. Here are two pictures from New Calton Hill's watch tower taken a few minutes apart. The potential orb in the left one cannot be seen on the photograph on the right, which means that it is not a star, as same camera settings were used for both pictures. Stars were visible that night, though, which is why they need to be taken in consideration.
