Kirk o Shotts.


fascinating tombstones in this hillside kirk. if you read this stone you will see the man was murdered and his ghost is supposed to haunt the motorway below.

Not the motorway thats reputedly haunted but the Main road beside the Kirk where Catherines Well is.
Rumour has it the residents of Salsburgh would rather walk  across open moor to Harthill than use the road at night.

heres the story.

Canthill Road, Kirk of Shotts

In the late 1990's a very scared female driver reported that she had hit a man who appeared to have walked out of the mist and in front of her car - she tried to brake,but hit him and he had bounced over the car, and in her rear view mirror she watched him land on his feet on the other side. When she climbed out to see if he was okay, the figure completely vanished. Around the same time there were several other witnesses who claimed to have encountered the same ghost, though they had been on foot at the time.  There was no possible explanation given for this alleged manifestation.


Gotta admit it is creepy up there. A bunch of Ghosthunters from Ayrshire spent some time up there and claim they where watched by a man in a hat at the gate.

Almost word for word as i heard it Dicky...
My daughters boyfriend lives in Shotts and his dad refuses point blank to use the Kirk road after dark even though it means either a detour through Carwishyfin or up the M8.

Rumoured that Derek Ancorah had plans to do some sort of docuscary on it but that was a couple of years ago now.
