The Ghosts of Drovers Inn

August 31 – September 1, 2015

It’s 9:30 p.m. and we are the last hikers to check into Drovers Inn. The kilted desk receptionist explains a room change due to wiring issues, so Randy and I now get haunted room #6 at no extra charge.  Lucky us.

Below is a YouTube video I found online that has a section from minute 1:00 to 2:15 showing the creepy hallways and the inside of Drovers Inn. You may want to skip the rest of the video… just sayin’.

The old hallway winds around  through another doorway, we climb more steps and arrive at our home for the night. Ghosts aren’t a scary deal for us, so we are quite content in our quaint little room. It is decorated much like a home 100 plus years ago with old portraits, antique dressers, etc. Kind of reminds me of the bedrooms in my childhood home.

 Who are these ghosts?

A little girl who drowned in the burn and was placed in the bed in one of the rooms?  People have reported waking up and feeling a cold body next to them in the bed.  Yikes!

An ancient cattle drover wandering the hallways late at night?

After such a strenuous day of hiking and, thanks to our hiking friends who open our eyes to the pleasures of mince & tatties plus haggis, we are too tired to even notice ghosts.

On the morning of September 1st, 2015, we leave the inn and cross the bridge that takes us back to the trail. A woman from Taiwan is walking in front of me and she stops, turns around and speaks to me;  Do you know what happened to me last night?  Drovers Inn put me in the haunted room.  I tried it, but got SO scared that I refused to stay there all night and had them switch me to a different room.

Hmmmm….that’s interesting.
