The Ravenspark Asylum is located in Irvine, Scotland and remained in use from 1846 to 1995. It currently lies abandoned, with much of the furnishings and electrical equipment still inside. The clothing of the inmates seem to be abandoned very suddenly, giving this building an intense atmosphere. This hospital once housed the insane, elderly, and unwanted. One of the legends surrounding the old asylum is that the bodies of paupers are buried in unmarked graves in the gardens of the hospital that is now tremendously overgrown. Paranormal activity has been recorded at a significantly high rate here.
Among the recordings of paranormal investigations are: doors opening and closing, whispering, footsteps, and on a few instances there have even been physical attacks. Strange lights and orbs have also been captured on film. There is the spirit of a man that refers to himself as Peek-a-boo Pete that is seen running through the halls. This is most likely the ghost of a man named Peter Brown who had the mental age of a child during his life. The spirit of a young boy named Iain haunts the physio room, sitting silently in his wheelchair. The spirit of an old sick woman haunts Ward 3. Currently, the Ravenspark Asylum is being renovated into luxury apartments.
