A group of women on a hen do recently had a rather unfamiliar experience with a ‘ghost’ after spotting a rather creepy figure lurking in the background of one of their celebratory snaps.
Frightened partygoers allegedly rapidly departed from a hen party upon discovering something rather alarming in one of their images.
The group of women, who were commemorating a friend’s upcoming wedding at a secluded property in Scotland, experienced a sense of shock when they took a series of rapid-fire photos within a brief span of time in the region of Argyll and Bute.

Among the pictures, capturing the friends in various poses, including some donning masks and raising their arms, one image left the women in one hell of a startled situation.
Allegedly, the women abruptly left the gathering upon investigating the property and uncovering a narrative about a child who tragically sleepwalked into the lake and drowned.
The narrative of the series of creepy events seems to align with The Blue Boy, a televised movie aired on the BBC in 1994, which revolved around the drowning of a four-year-old in Loch Eck.
This film, featuring Academy Award winner Emma Thompson, purportedly utilised the exact location where the aforementioned photographs were captured.
The narrative is a theatrical representation of a story associated with The Coylet Inn, a 17th-century inn perched by the loch, renowned for its rumoured haunting.
These images initially surfaced last summer and ignited an intense online discourse regarding the boy’s appearance, leading to doubts about its genuineness.
One Reddit user said: “Welp… not going to be sleeping tonight.”
In an interview with The Herald in 1994, The Blue Boy screenwriter Paul Murton said: “I was talking to the hotelier about it and he mentioned the Blue Boy.
“This, he said, was a young child who had been on holiday with his parents in the hotel and he had been sleepwalking during the night,
“He had strayed outside, fallen into the loch, and drowned. When they found his body it was blue with the cold,
“Hotel staff had noticed that things like cutlery and plates were often out of place for no apparent reason – perhaps more sinister than that was the fact that they sometimes found wet footprints upstairs in the corridor.”
