The Herald Magazine - - COVER STORY -

From the ghostly form of a young girl in a pink dress ap­pear­ing on the stairs to guests be­ing pho­tographed while they sleep, The Drovers Inn is packed with creepy tales.

Ac­cord­ing to eye­wit­ness ac­counts, room 115 crack­les with un­ex­plained ac­tiv­ity. One cou­ple claim to have seen dozens of glow­ing orbs flick­er­ing around, while other guests stay­ing in the same room said they awoke to find their cam­era had been moved and a series of pho­tos taken through­out the night.

The images in­cluded one of them asleep with an oth­er­worldly light em­a­nat­ing from above the four-poster bed. At first they sus­pected their trav­el­ling com­pan­ions had snuck in and played a prank, only to re­alise the door re­mained locked from the in­side, ex­actly as they had left it.

Vis­i­tors stay­ing in room six, mean­while, re­ported be­ing wo­ken in the night by the feel­ing of a cold, wet form next to them in bed. It is be­lieved to be the ghost of a girl who drowned in the River Fal­loch dur­ing the 1800s and whose corpse was laid out in the room. Visit drover­
