Western Infirmary, Glasgow
The Western Infirmary is a teaching hospital in Glasgow. Mark Gould gives the following account there of a haunt like experience in his article entitled 'Ghosts of sisters past' which was published in The Guardian on 22 December 2004. 'One night in 1975, Mary McLellan was working as a ward sister at the Western Infirmary in Glasgow. She was setting up a piece of equipment in a room facing a well-lit corridor when she became aware of a "tall, silver-haired man wearing a blue dressing gown and standing near the doorway of the ward opposite". He stood still and silent for a moment and then vanished. But she thought nothing of it, assuming he was a patient who had just gone back to bed. "Almost immediately, the ward nurse came over to me," McLellan recalls. "She was very upset at seeing the apparition. She recognised him as a patient who had died two days previously."
