Photographer's Note

Dunluce Castle in the early hours of the morning shows a ghostly apparition through the sea spray. Steeped in mystery and supernatural mythology the castle is said to have been enchanted by ghosts and giants, there have been several historical accounts of spooks and sightings on castle grounds.

The castle has now settled into a docile old age, past residents still make occasional forays from beyond the grave to remind us of its stormy and eventful past. Several people have reported feeling a cold chill on entering the South-East Tower, as if some unseen presence has pushed past them. Staff arriving at the castleís shop in the morning, sometimes find that books have been lifted from the shelves and placed neatly on the floor overnight, or radios that were definitely switched off the previous day, have been mysteriously switched back on.

Whoever the spirits that now walk the ethereal plain of Dunluce Castle may have been in life, their activities are seldom malicious and rarely inspire fear. Indeed, those who encounter them are more than happy to let them continue about their ghostly business, just as they have done and, no doubt, will do for as long as these ancient walls shall stand.
