The ruins of a “haunted” Scottish village sell for almost $ 173,000

The remains of a village in Scotland that is likely haunted were sold for offers of over £ 125,000 ($ 172,859).

The ruins of the Old Village of Lawers sit on the shores of Loch Tay in the central highlands of Scotland and extend over three acres of land. This comes from the Goldcrest Land & Forestry Group listed on Friday, which is handling the sale.

One of the ruins is the House of Lawyers, the end of the 17th century.

She was known for her various prophecies, such as the reference to “fire buses” crossing the Drummer Pass, which is her prediction that the railroad would come.

One of the more sinister prophecies of the Lady of Lawers was that “a smoke-powered ship will sink in Loch Tay with great loss of life”. No information is available about such a disaster, but it is believed that it predicted steamships before they were built.

“Perhaps unsurprisingly, the site is haunted by a woman today; probably the lady,” Goldcrest said in the property brochure.

The ruins of the old village also include a former mill and oven.

An 1841 census found that 17 people were living in the village at the time, according to Goldcrest. In 1891 there were only seven, all of whom lived in the house of the Pirmestars, which was abandoned in 1926.

Certain fishing rights in Loch Tay are included in the sale, as is permission to launch a boat.

For the avid hiker, there are seven Munros, as they are known in Scotland for mountains over 3,000 feet high. This includes Ben Lawers, the tenth tallest munro in Scotland but the tallest in the central highlands.
