GOVANHILL BATHS – WALKING WITH GHOSTS

the baths

One area of the baths has some chilling history which could make it attractive to dedicated ghost hunters – the ladies pool was used as a temporary morgue for bodies during WW2.

Govanhill Baths Community Trust’s Project Manager Andrew Johnson said: “During doors open day we had a chap come in and tell us his father drove the bodies here after the Clydebank Blitz because there was no space at the city morgue.”

The Rogano is home to a long term ghost! – Rogano has accumulated more than its fair share of legends downthrough the decades but perhaps one of the most curious is the tale of its ghost. It is said that the son of Rogano founder James Henry Roger hanged himself in one of the cloakrooms and some senior staff members swear that his ghost still haunts the place. In 2009, the Rogano celebrated it’s 3/4 century anniversary .

2. THE GRAND CENTRAL HOTEL

Glasgow’s Central Hotel has a long and distinguished history – originally built in 1882 by Caledonian Railways alongside their Central Station, it had 420 beds for guests plus 170 beds for their servants – these were the days when the upper classes travelled in style! When the station was extended in 1906, the hotel was also extended. Dating back to 1883, the seventh floor of the legendary Hotel, previously the servants’ quarters, is supposed to be haunted with the ghost of a former staff member. The heartbroken young chef jumped out of the window after his love, a fellow staff member, rejected him. The story goes that so much paranormal activity occurred afterwards, the 6th and 7th floors were evacuated.
