Haunted Houses Events have encountered many spooky goings-on on previous visits here. Phantom footsteps heard coming from the spiral staircase, taps and bangs in response to calling-out; strange mists and shadows and guests feeling sick upon entering the bedroom where Mary Queen of Scots was nursed from her illness. Join Haunted Houses for your ghost hunt at this haunted location, where you may just make communication with Mary Queen of Scots herself.

Your Event

On a ghost hunt with Haunted Houses you will have exclusive access to the building/location during the evening. You will learn all about ghost hunting and the techniques used to encourage paranormal activity. We have a whole host of scientific ghost hunt equipment for you to use to aid communication with the spirits. You can take part in Ouija boards, glass divination and table tipping; the more traditional ghost hunt techniques. Or simply sitting in the dark and asking for the spirits to interact with you. Lone vigils (ghost hunting alone) will also be offered where available. During your evening you will be split into smaller groups so you can get the most out of your experience. If you are new to ghost hunting we warn you now – by the end of the night you may just become addicted to the fascinating and intriguing world of ghost hunting.

This is a real ghost hunt experience, there is no fakery, tricks or actors jumping out at you. What are you waiting for? Book your places today!

Venue History

Queen Mary’s House is a listed sixteenth century building in Jedburgh which is where Mary, Queen of Scots, stayed for a few weeks in 1566. The building has been open to the public since 1930 as a museum. In 1971 it became a category A listed building.

Mary who was the Queen of the Scots came with her entourage to Jedburgh in 1566 to hold a court. She paid £40 to hire the house. Whilst she was in Jedburgh she heard that James Hepburn, 4th Earl of Bothwell, lay injured at Hermitage Castle. She took a hazardous journey to see him and returned ill from the experience. She was said to have later noted that she should have died in Jedburgh, as after that her life became worse. She didn’t die but she was forced to abdicate. She tried to escape to England, but she was imprisoned and, much later, executed.

In 1777 the house was the home of Dr Lindsay and his wife Jean. Ten years later their daughters were guides for Robert Burns when he visited Jedburgh. Dr Lindsay’s grandson, Lieutenant General Robert Armstrong inherited the house in about 1819. He had entered the Russian army and became in time the head of the Saint Petersburg Mint. Robert allowed his aunts to occupy the house until 1869 when Elizabeth Armstrong died.
