Second ‘Ghost

Sighting At

Tantallon Castle

TELEGRAPH.CO.UK
April 3rd, 2009


Last week a picture taken 
at the ruined Scottish castle 
on the East Lothian coast 
was voted the world’s 
most convincing 
ghost snap.

It appeared to show a 
figure clad in Tudor dress
and a ruff peering out 
of a crumbling window.

The photographer who 
took the picture last May 
claimed he saw no one there,
and tests have ruled out 
digital tampering.

Experts suggested the image
might have been a trick of 
the light, 
but confirmed sceptic
Professor Richard Wiseman 
admitted he was puzzled.

The second photo was 
taken by Grace Lamb, 
from Edinburgh, 
at the same location 
32 years ago.

It shows her late husband
Hugh and two children 
Paul and Kelly – 
and behind them, 
what looks like a female figure
staring out of an opening 
above the window in the 
original ghost photo.

As before, 
Mrs Lamb does not recall 
seeing the face when she 
pressed the camera button.

The figure was only noticed
when the photograph was 
developed and has been a 
topic of heated debate by 
the family ever since.

The family sent the photo 
to Prof Wiseman after seeing
news coverage of the 
original Tantallon “ghost”.

Prof Wiseman, 
from Hertfordshire University,
headed a panel of experts 
looking at ghost pictures 
from around the world as 
part of a project for 
Edinburgh International 
Science Festival.

He said: 
“I am sceptical about ghosts,
but this is a great find. 
There has been a huge number
of people visiting the project 
website and I have received 
hundreds of images, 
but this is one of 
the most curious.”

Alex Pryce, 
of the Edinburgh 
Skeptics group, 
was unconvinced. 

He said: 
“When the picture is enlarged,
it is quite obvious it is a 
woman with a carrier bag in 
her hand and her handbag 
over her shoulder. 

It is a woman in a pink jacket
coming down some stairs 
with a shopping bag.”
