“The Victorians, for instance, couldn’t get five minutes’ peace without falling over a ghost. So what has changed? Have all the spectres left town?”
Jan-Andrew Henderson, The Ghost That Haunted Itself: The Story of the Mackenzie Poltergeist - The Infamous Ghoul of Greyfriars Graveyard

“Greyfriars, like other cemeteries, employed occasional night watchmen, but guards were easily bribed and it was not unusual to see families, rich and poor, huddled round the graves of recently deceased relatives waiting for their loved ones to decompose enough to be useless to the anatomists.”
Jan-Andrew Henderson, The Ghost That Haunted Itself: The Story of the Mackenzie Poltergeist - The Infamous Ghoul of Greyfriars Graveyard

“But the Royal Mile ghosts have the same elusive quality as its parking spaces – there are always thousands of people on the lookout, but nobody ever spots one.”
Jan-Andrew Henderson, The Ghost That Haunted Itself: The Story of the Mackenzie Poltergeist - The Infamous Ghoul of Greyfriars Graveyard
