Memories of Auldgirth
i went to school with one of the daughters who lived in this house she said it was very creepy. last year 2013 my son attended closeburn nursery with a little girl whos family are now living there and they said there are not so much sightings now but they do continue to hear and feel things particularly in the upstairs of the house.
My father Colin Seaton was born and raised in Auldgirth, he was the youngest of 5 children. He left Scotland when he was 17 and now lives in australia. Does anyone remember the Seaton family at all? I visited Auldgirth back in 2007 and there wasn't anyone around that remember my fathers family, any information would be great
About 10 to 15 years ago I remember reading an article in the Sunday Post concerning a haunted cottage in Auldgirth. Apparently there was a considerable amount of poltergeist activity and eventually a clergyman was called in to perform a rite of exorcism. Does anybody have any more information? Has the poltergeist activity continued or ceased?
My G.G.G.Grandmother was Elizabeth Jardine. She was born at Auldgirth in the 1700s. She married Matthew MacDougal. When visiting the areas of interest around Dumfries, a Mr. Crockett from Dunscore, explained that Auldgirth had been a big farm at one time in the past. Does anyone have any historical information on the site?
