Out of stock

Join the Scottish Ghost Nights crew as we explore the ghostly secrets of the Stair Arms Hotel in Pathhead, Midlothian and conduct a traditional Victorian Séance.

Historic coaching Inn

The Stair Arms Hotel was built in 1830 and is Grade B listed.  It has a reputation for being haunted by a chamber maid who was killed whilst working there and there are many more spirits of centuries past said to remain here….. A venue we love to return to as it tells it’s ghostly secrets. Our seance bell has rung on it’s own several times in one night, there are regular problems with our technical kit, unexplained temperature changes and on one occasion an apparition was seen walking through the function room! 

Stair Arms HotelYour night

Throughout the night at the Stair Arms Hotel you will be given a tour of the haunted locations with our medium before taking part in vigils using traditional ghost hunt techniques such as table tipping, glass moving, psychic circles and spirit boards. You will also be given chance to work alongside our technical investigators as they use equipment such as K2 meters, spirit boxes, parabolic microphones, laser grids, temperature sensors, infra-red cameras and trigger equipment.

Stair Arms HotelThe Victorian Séance at the Stair Arms Hotel

Join us as we venture through the veil of darkness and try to make contact with the spirit world by using the traditional Victorian séance methods. We will attempt to draw aside the veil between the physical world and the spirit world. Previous séances here have produced astounding results  

The séance will be carried out with just the dim light from the flickering candles, will you be brave enough to sit, wait and see what may occur?

During the séance we will use various techniques to establish communication with spirit, but please remember, there are differing opinions as to the existence (or not) of spirits and ghosts, and because of this guests are advised to regard the evening purely as entertainment We make no claims to the validity of the phenomena that may be witnessed. Each séance will vary somewhat due to the time it takes to contact the spirits, but will generally last approximately 40 minutes.
