‘Haunted’ Ruins of Ancient Village with Private Beach for Sale on Loch Tay in Perthshire | UK News

The ruins of a village believed to be haunted by a 17th century ghost have been put up for sale.

The old village of Lawers, on the north shore of Loch Tay in Perthshire, is up for grabs for offers of over £ 125,000.

The three-acre site includes a private beach, semi-old native forest, and trout fishing rights.

It also includes the Old Lawers Church, built in 1669, a mill, an oven, the House of the Lawers, and apparently the ghost of its last occupant, a woman who predicted the invention of trains and steamboats.

It is believed that the Lady of the Lawyers still haunts the village and we remember making various prophecies, some of which seem to have come true.
