The Aultoun is ancient, having its origins in the bishopric of St Machar, founded in 1130AD

The ghosts of the Aultoun are apparently more innocuous than those in New Aberdeen…   Spooks who aren't out to upset the living, like… the shadowy suffragette who wanders across High Street, the mysterious Gerrard sisters of the Chanonry, the desperate Hermit of Powis and his hidden sorrow.  But, Sacrist Downie, the university’s most unpopular eighteenth century janitor, was the unfortunate victim of a prank gone wrong in Kings’ Quad, and how did minister's wife, Mrs Baird cope with the ghost in her son's old bedroom? Join us to find out more.
