Did you know the Falkirk Mansion is home to its very own ghost? Over the years people who have come and gone through Falkirk have reported seeing the ghost of Ella Park, the mansion's original owner. Some have caught a glimpse of her on on the staircase; others have seen her peering out the window. Those who have spotted the ghost note that she does not seem to be a malicious spirit, and seems only to be watching over her beloved home and its guests.
Last year, Library staff recorded some spooky ghost stories inside the haunted mansion. Enjoy!
