Welcome to a Halloween themed #PTTravel Chat!
How are you and where are you joining us from?
replying to @kate_frankie @kate_frankie Hi everyone - we popped from T1 N Yorks to T1 East Riding this afternoon and got a shot for the theme, along with some to show off the bright weather #PTTravel

replying to @kate_frankie @kate_frankie Hi everyone, joining #PTTravel tonight from the dark Cairngorms near Braemar. I had to make my Hallowe'en lantern early as he was starting to get a bit squishy underneath.
replying to @kate_frankie @kate_frankie #pttravel A1: .... like, my real house is close to both Annesley Hall and Newstead Abbey, both of which have noted ghosts, allegedly.
A1 As a child I lived about a mile and a half from Dibbin Bridge - it was closed for repairs one winter in the early 80s and the Headless Nun stories were rife. Cue lots of youngsters hiding down there and scaring people witless 👻 #pttravel
A1 #PTTravel The ghost of Henry, Duke of Buckingham is said to haunt Debenhams, where the Blue Boar once stood. (Stop Press! Debenhams, also, is no more!)
replying to @kate_frankie @kate_frankie A1. Aberdeenshire has 263 castles + around 150 stone circles, so we're spoiled for spooky choice around here. But possibly the best known is this one, New Slains Castle near Cruden Bay, where writer Bram Stoker wrote his most famous work. #PTTravel
replying to @kate_frankie @kate_frankie A2 The last time I was genuinely scared was after I'd had a Hallowe'en night out in Wokingham in the late 90s. I left to drive to work in Sussex at 4.30am and as I drove past the graveyard someone appeared over the wall in a Scream mask - I had to clean the car 😬 #pttravel
replying to @kate_frankie @kate_frankie A1. The only Dundonian “mystery” I can think of surrounds the Tay rail disaster of 1879. There have been spurious accounts of premonitions and ghost trains, and a more scientific debate about the exact role of the preceding storm. #PTTravel
A2 I'll be the one in the group who suggests the scary film & I'll be the one hiding my eyes! I like the ghost tales and tours. There is something fun about a fright so I do like going to spooky places. Not alone though!

@kate_frankie #pttravel A3: stone circle, scottish mist.
(somewhere near Loch Fyne)
A3 #pttravel Victoria, BC, Canada has a lot of haunted places including the Fairmont Hotel that had an old lady die there & supposedly still haunts the place.
