    1. I stayed in the Apex Grassmarket hotel and had ‘visits’ from a man and a woman. Anyone else stay there and have encounters?

      1. Just stayed there recently. The first night I woke up and a man with a dark coat was sitting on the bed and second night woke up with the feeling that someone was squeezing my arm tightly trying to wake me up.

  2. Man screaming, very scary, lots of hair (inc. facial), dirty torn clothing- hair was darker but not sure if dirty to make it dark or dark naturally. And a woman in a grey outfit with a white hat and white apron. Her hair was dirty blonde. She was clinging her hands. It wasn’t until my last night there that I found out its near where people were executed.

  3. we recently stayed at a hotel there in Edinburgh. The first night there were footsteps in our room near our beds. It was also someone standing at the foot of the bed.

  4. Stayed at the Brooks hotel. Woke in the night and saw a shadow moving away from my side of the bed out to the door. Next night I woke up and felt someone watching me.
