On Friday night (May 25th), we went on a ghost tour. We met our tour guide in the Octagon and started it beside the library. We then walked to First Church where Andrew told us about the lady ghost that lived there. We went around the back of the church - the ghost has been seen in the car park, she has a dress on and is in white. We took some photos and then we walked to the next place, opposite First Church, an alley called Black Dog Alley. People say that in the 1960’s, two butcher’s that had a butcher’s shop down there created a story about the ghost of a dog to scare people away from this butchers shop to protect it from thieves. We then we went to another place, the back of the Reagent Threatre where there was a bad fire in the gold rush day’s and lot’s of people (50) got burnt to death. Now they say that if there is a ghost present you can smell smoke. Lastly we walked to Carnegie Centre in Moray Place and Andrew took us down 8 flights to a bunker room. Andrew told us that the man who owned the centre, called Andrew Carnegie died and now haunts it and that sometimes a ghost can punch you but you can not feel it until a day or so later when you feel a bruise.
