1. Lady in Welsh Folk Dress, Llyn Peninsula
In January 2012, holidaymaker Paul Feehan took a trip to Abersoch to enjoy the rambling countryside. It all started when they wanted to rest and his friend filmed the beautiful scenery. When the video was watched by them there was spotted a black figure with no exact features standing close by, after some research they found it to be women in their traditional costume but there is a misconception that it is someone with the dog. Well, the reality is we do not know which is the misconception yet.
2. My Imaginary Friend
“When I was younger, I had an imaginary friend who lived in this massive antique dresser. I vividly remember him telling me stories, although I have absolutely no recollection of what they actually were. And one day I was all hyped up about my friend and wanted to show-off by telling other all his stories and I started it with my family. I told my father that I have a friend named Peter as he kept enquiring about what was happening all I know was my friend wasn’t just known to me but my uncle (dad’s brother) also had the same imaginary friend named Peter. They then took out the dresser and burnt it. Later my uncle had sleeping issues and we found out it was because of Peter, our friend.
3. Glamis Castle, Scotland
This castle was first built in the 14th century, and it’s where the Queen Mother—the late mother to Queen Elizabeth II—grew up. It’s also said to be populated by a bevy of ghosts including the Grey Lady, or the Lady of Glamis, otherwise known as Lady Janet Douglas.
Accused of murdering her husband by poisoning him and of using witchcraft to take down King James V of Scotland, the Grey Lady was burned at the stake in 1537 in Edinburgh. Her ghost is said to run up the stairs in the clock tower, leaving a trail of ash in her wake. A woman with no tongue has been seen roaming the park around the castle, and the ghost of an 18th-century boy servant, who had been terribly mistreated, is said to haunt a seat near the door of the queen’s bedroom.
The most famous ghost is Earl Beardie or the Earl of Crawford. This noble visited the castle in the 15th century, and one night, he got drunk and demanded that someone play cards with him. If no one would, the Earl declared, he would play the devil himself. A mysterious hooded man dressed in black showed up at Glamis and offered to play. The following morning Earl disappeared and it is said that visitors hear swearing, squeaky noises, and glass breaks.

Later a priest was called and exorcism was performed and the Warren’s locked it in a specially designed box and it was kept in the museum. The powers of the doll were believed to have left the doll until a man continuously trolled and mocked the doll in the museum met with an unexpected crash on his way back home.
