Globe Inn Barmaid Ghost
Details of the barmaid ghost at the Globe Inn in Dumfries and who she is thought to be and her relationship to Robert Burns
The Globe Inn in Dumfries was the regular drinking haunt of Robert Burns
. Though the ghost of Robert Burns does not haunt the Globe Inn the spirit of his mistress does. She appears as a barmaid dressed in the costume of that period, the 18th century. Her name was Anna Park and she died in childbirth after giving birth to the child of Robert Burns. The orphaned child, Elizabeth, was brought up by Burns and his wife Jean.
Though Anna Park died in a sad way she remains full of fun and mischief and sightings of her ghost seem to take place at times of merriment and when there is much laughter in the Inn. The Globe Inn barmaid ghost will tug at people's sleeves to get their attention and move things around .
The barmaid ghost is also seen during periods of change or disruption at the Globe Inn such as during renovations.

My new novel:
The Aberdeen skies are under attack from an enemy jet. It is spilling a strange yellow smoke. Minutes later, people start killing each other.
Former Royal Air Force Regiment Gunner Jason Harper witnesses this and then his wife, Pippa, telephones him, shouting that she needs him. They then get cut off. He sets straight out, unprepared for the nightmare that unfolds during his journey. Everyone seems to want to kill him.
Along the way, he pairs up with fellow survivor Imogen. But she enjoys killing the living dead far too much. Will she kill Jason in her blood thirst? Or will she hinder his journey through this zombie filled dystopian landscape to find his pregnant wife?
The Fence is the first in this series of post-apocalyptic military survival thrillers from the torturous mind of local horror and science fiction novel writer C.G. Buswell.

White Lady Ghost
The Globe Inn dates back to the year 1610 and is a beautiful and atmospheric pub. It is thought to be the home to other ghosts which include a White Lady. She is most often seen during Burns Night Suppers
Robert Burns and the Globe Inn
The favourite seat of Robert Burns is still at the Globe Inn and some poetry that he etched on a bedroom window with a diamond is still visible.
One evening the Landlord of the Globe Inn, William Hyslop, gave Robert Burns a free meal in return for this after dinner poem:
O Lord when hunger pinches sore,
Do Thou stand us in stead,
And send us, from Thy bounteous store,
A tup or wether head!
O Lord, since we have feasted thus,
Which we so little merit,
Let Meg now take away the flesh,
And Jock bring in the spirit!

Have you seen my beautiful golden retriever Lynne out and about in Aberdeen? Ask her for a high-five! She's a Bravehound PTSD assistance dog, so we'll often be in shops, restaurants, and the cinema together.
We've written a book where I talk about growing up in Aberdeen and then joining the army to be a medic and nurse, and developing military Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
I also talk about losing my son to suicide and the therapy I have had at Royal Cornhill Hospital and grief support groups in Aberdeen.
The author, Damien Lewis, said of Lynne:
"A powerful account of what one dog means to one man on his road to recovery. Both heart-warming and life-affirming. Bravo Chris and Lynne. Bravo Bravehound."
