Haunted House of Leith/John Arthur-The Guardian/Edinburgh

The Leith Shoppers Facebook page has been running some local history pieces by South Leith Church historian John Arthur. The latest installment is less history and more mystery. It is titled ‘Haunted House of Leith.’

Here’s an excerpt:

“Just along the road from the Cat Neuk was a house next to what was the Council Chamber and was haunted this time by a woman and she enjoyed breaking dishes. The last occupant “Pig Jamie” was constantly accused of breaking the dishes when he was drunk. However people came to the house including a minister and left convinced of the existence of the spirit.”
