Pannanich Wells Hotel Ballater Ghost Stories

- The Ghostly Maid And Saucy Maid's Outfit Ghosts!
The ghosts of Pannanich Hotel are friendly and held in great affection by most people who have encountered them.

The owners, Val and Chris took over ownership of this old coaching inn, which dates back to 1760, in 1987 and soon experienced ghostly goings on. The first such strange occurrence was in bedroom one which had an uneasy feeling about it. In an effort to change this they decorated the room with some family teddy bears. The atmosphere changed instantly to one of happiness. Visitors have been said to have heard breathing, but seen no-one else in the room. Others have smelt a violet scent. A few guests have had to leave the Hotel because of the strange smells, though most people like the smells.

A friendly Grey Lady ghost has been seen by the owners. The ghost was dressed in a dark shirt and grey blouse and looked young and slim. She is thought to be the spirit of a Victorian maid. Some newspapers reported the ghost as a sexy ghost dressed in a saucy maid's outfit!

Aberdeen Lynne Golden Retriever

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."
