Gilmerton House Ghost

Straight Up Ghosts



My grandfather owns a big house called ‘Gilmerton House’ i grew up in the house next to it so I was always near it if not inside. There are many ghost stories about a woman they called ‘the white lady’ but I didn’t know about these until after… I was taking a picture one evening of my grandma’s dog on top of the stairs, after I took the picture I showed my grandparents and brother, my brother noticed a white figure in the window reflection. I didn’t think much of it until I zoomed in and saw a woman wearing a ball gown staring right at the camera. I was freaked out but it also felt familiar. I asked my grandparents about it and they said that over the years some people have said that they saw a very pale all-white lady in a big dress, and then they told me that when I was about 2 years old I wandered off and came back saying a strange-looking lady tried asked me to go with her and held out her hand. I was 2 and had never heard of ghosts. When I go there next time…I’m going to try and find her.
