The Ghost at Souter Lighthouse

  • Description

    In 1838, Grace Darling earned her reputation as the country's most celebrated maritime heroine when she rescued crew members of a sinking ship in treacherous conditions. More than 160 years later, her niece, Isobella Darling, is still making her presence felt. Staff have reported spoons levitating, cold spots and the feeling of being physically grabbed, with much of the activity reportedly taking place in the kitchen and living areas. They have also commented on the strong odour of tobacco in the kitchen corridor, and also in the area around the recreated Keeper’s Cottage. A waitress was also surprised to spot at the far end of the kitchen corridor a man in an old-fashioned lighthouse keeper’s uniform, who then promptly disappeared. Ghost story: This Location has so many ghost stories. One of the main ghost stories are of a young girl who is said to have been seennear the engine room. People have reported her crying and others have heard there names been called by a young female voice could it be that of Isobella Darling, niece of Grace Darling who is one of the most celebrated maritime heroines of all time.

Could it be a former keeper who is responsible for the odor of tobacco experienced many times?
