Mysterious Figure in Castle Window Has Photo Experts Stumped





An eerie image of a figure at a Scottish castle has experts spooked.

The picture, taken in May last year, shows a spectral figure in 15th century dress peering out of a barred window at Tantallon Castle in Fife.

No mannequins or costumed guides are used at the castle and photo experts have confirmed that no digital trickery was used.

Even ghost sceptic Professor Richard Wiseman admitted to being puzzled.

“It is certainly very curious,” he said. "We ran it by three photographic experts and they said it hadn’t been Photoshopped at all."

Tantallon Castle, a ruined fortress dating back to the 14th century, stands on a remote rocky headland near North Berwick on the East coast of Scotland. It was badly damaged in an attack by Oliver Cromwell’s forces in 1651.
