Ghost Photographed in an Abandoned Mental Hospital

Hospitals have earned a spooky reputation due to various stories of people claiming they felt, have seen an entity on the vicinity. Movies used the haunted hospital plot countless times and that just proves how horror and hospitals blends perfectly together. But what if you get to photograph the ghost of a former employee or even the former patients on your own hospital bed? Would you still get the urge to stay at the hospital or rush yourself to go home?

A photo taken in 1998 at the Craig Dunain Mental Hospital located in Inverness, Scotland terrified people who have seen the photo. The photo shows an apparition of a ghostly figure dressed in white standing in the corner of a room by a window. Speculations say that it is a patient of the mental hospital who wears his straitjacket. Others claim that it could be the nurse who have worked there before.

It's most likely to be possible that this is a spirit of an entity that used to stay on that hospital. Hospitals is a place where a lot of people could have spent most of their time and they could become attached to it even death separates them from the place.The spirits of many people could’ve become attached to this place. 

Though the thought of capturing the spirit of a patient or a nurse on that hospital could be taken as a fact, There are also claims that it could be a case of  pareidolia.
Pareidolia (/pærɨˈdoʊliə/ parr-i-doh-lee-ə) is a psychological phenomenon involving a vague and random stimulus (often an image or sound) being perceived as significant. Common examples include seeing images of animals or faces in clouds, the man in the moon or the Moon rabbit, and hearing hidden messages on records when played in reverse.
 People who claims that it is pareidolia states that the figure is only a combination of the wall mounted lamps and the light that’s coming in through the window,that produces the ghostly figure.
