Facebook user Randy Topacio posted some interesting pictures to his account on March 10th of this year while in Intramuros, a historical district in Manila, Philippines. Besides being the former capital when the area was part of the Spanish Empire, it also is known as the walled city, due to the defense walls built in the 16th century.

Intramuros is actually Spanish for ‘within the walls.’

Topacio was standing on one of these walls when he took a series of interesting photographs he speculates could actually be images of the ghosts of a Spanish soldier and a group of nuns.

Birkwood Castle, located  in  Lanarkshire, Scotland is reputed to be one of the most haunted locations in the UK.

Built in 1860, the castle became a psychiatric hospital in 1923 and was used as such until 2002. The building also had facilities for working with mentally disabled children.

Incidents reported at the location include a doctor who died of a heart attack at the hospital being spotted in a window from outside, footsteps heard down the corridors, a boy reportedly named ‘Mike’ or ‘Micheal’ riding a bike on the property as well as being the near the stairwell where he fell to his death, smells of cigar smoke and lights being turned on and off while the hospital was still in service and the ghost of one Henrik Richardson, who was said to have been stabbed in throat and died from that injury while at the location.

The castle was going to be turned into a leisure center in 2011 but that fell through.

In 2014 Birkwood Castle was featured on the television series Haunted Planet.

Recently the castle was undergoing renovations to be turned into a hotel and some apartments…that is until the ghostly residents of Birkwood decided this was not going to happen and instead destroyed Birkwood instead.
