Scottish case of a "Haunted House", 1695. During two months, till 1 May, the spook showed in a terrifying way all possible phenomena which were seen and testified by a large number of persons. The priest Telfair was very engaged and wrote later a report about the activities of the unknown "It".

It began with stall spook, but the invisible force took also persons, hit them or transported them through the door. There was often fire - on two days seven times - and a strange black cloud. A separated hand was seen, a hot stone was thrown in the bed where the children were. A voice was heard by the present persons. At the end the sheep stall was burning. It could never be discovered what the origin of all events was, why it began in Mackie's house.
