My name is James, I am 43, I live in little town on the west coast of Scotland, last year my girlfriend of 29 years and I decided to get married. We wanted a very quiet honeymoon so we booked a log cabin in a very serene little town called Arrochar up north.
The first night was Halloween 2016, my wife went to bed early, I went to bed after 12, around 3:30 I was sleeping on my stomach, I felt something grabbing or trying to bite my calf through the bed sheets.
I have 3 cats at home, one of which has a habit of jumping over my back early hours in the morning to get out. I thought it was my cat then realized it couldn't be, I'm not at home. I turned to see what it was and standing in front of the bedroom door I can only describe as a large black dog standing on its hind legs, it had the features of a dog but no eyes. I watched it and it made a gesture to me with its (paw) three times as if to beckon me towards it. I froze for a couple of seconds then managed to blurt out the words "f**k off"!. Then all of a sudden it just disappeared. My wife slept through it. I didn't want to tell her because we still had 4 nights left.
The afternoon of the second day my wife told me that she didn't like it and thought the place was eerie, so I eventually told her. She wouldn't go into that room herself so she called our daughter who considers herself a white witch as she used to see spirits of her "other mum and dad" who died and has books on spiritual matters. My daughter told me that seeing a black dog was a portent of death and to put certain symbols around the bed. After that I never saw it again.
I contacted the company but no-one else had made any complaints. I later found out that the Arrochar hotel straight across the Loch has a green lady and a black dog?
What does anyone else think?
