    Re: Spynie Palace
    The following experience was e-mailed in by one of our readers:

    One beautiful sunny summers morning about 9.00 am, I tried to enter Spynie Palace as a visitor. Although the door was open I was ‘not allowed’ to go in and could not ‘break through’ an invisible barrier. I ask the attendant to help me and as she was serving a new visitor I waited. Thinking this was silly I tried again and on forcing my way through (another visitor had just entered) I came upon a spirit man of such evil and aggression I was shocked. He was dressed in a plaid tunic, with shoulder length wavy hair, moustache and sharp goatee beard. His eyes were slitty and bright blue, his face thin and he had pantaloons on. He ranted and raved and I ‘told him’ I was ‘looking at the architecture’…..I existed the palace quickly just at the moment the attendant came to look for me. She expressed concern at my appearance, and I felt I had to tell her what I had encountered. She immediately said, ‘oh you have just met the Wolf of Badenoch’….I asked her what was he doing here as I had expected an ecclesiastical atmosphere. She said Alexander Stewart alias the ‘wolf’ had actually lived at the palace for 3 years! Other experiences there were of three excitable young horsemen leaving on the main drive, trotting, laughing and cantering on their small ponies. I felt these were the bishop’s messengers and there were three of them so that the message got through if anything should happen like an attack. In other locations, Eilean Donan for example on walking around the fortified house I sensed a woman in red velvet sitting at a desk, writing to a man overseas, the image I got was of naval vessels of old world kind coming up the loch. Years later my son who wasn’t with me at the time, told me that Mary Queen of Scots’ had been living at the castle and had written secretly to Phillip of Spain to come for her. Its very exciting getting information like this and I never research before I go anywhere, the reward is finding out later. This is just a small example of the many psychic cameos I am ‘shown’ when I go to historic sites. This information doesn’t all come at once, but is revealed gradually during several visits. I would love to share this with others and the fun part is researching afterwards. I have yet to find verification of the three horsemen at Spynie Palace but must admit I haven’t tried very hard yet. Once whilst waiting to pick up my son outside Elgin Academy I suddenly had a ‘message’ that ‘the bishops were angry with the lawmen because they were not doing the bishops bidding’…what this was I don’t know but I was parked between the cathedral and an area know as Sherriffmill……
