The Kelpie Experiment at Jedburgh Castle Jail 

Saturday 27th May 2017

Only £43

District: Jedburgh Scottish Borders

Time: 9pm until 3am

Jedburgh Castle Jail, built in 1823 on the site of the town’s gallows. Constructed to designs by Archibald Elliot and was a classic example of an early Howard reform prison.

In 1774 John Howard gave his evidence to a House of Commons committee that led to two Act which aimed to improve conditions in gaols. However with the dawn of the industrial revolution and the increase in crime Jedburgh Castle Jail was adapted to make punishment the order of the day. There are many stories of strange ghostly sightings and odd occurrences. The jails most active spirit is said to be that of a nasty man called Edward McArthur. A prisoner at the jail and since his own execution in 1855 has been the main culprit who is renowned for threatening and scares members of the public to this very day. Even the sound of phantom pipe music has been heard in the dead of night.


A shape shifter able to adopt human form and communicate with the living.  A type of ghost or supernatural being supposedly responsible for psychical disturbances such as loud noises and objects being moved or destroyed.  This experiment is not for the faint hearted or of a nervous disposition.  Can poltergeist activity be manifested by spirit communication?
