Learmonth Hotel, Edinburgh
The Learmonth Hotel is reputedly haunted by what has been described as a poltergeist . The hotel is on the tree lined 19th Century Learmonth Terrace. Activity in the hotel is said to include doors that open and close by themselves, whistling being heard by staff and visitors in the corridors and interference with electrical devices such as hairdryers and kettles.
According to Lily Seafield in Scottish Ghosts, ‘The spirit plays pranks on guests from time to time, on occasion locking them out of their rooms. At other times doors are found to have opened or closed by themselves and doors that had been locked have been found unlocked.’
