Lena Points #5: Candleriggs Carpark, Merchant City, Glasgow
Scary Old Ladies in Glasgow
Lena is back with Student Tours Scotland and this time she is pointing at a cool car park sign that most folk in Glasgow have never even noticed. The car park is on the Candleriggs Street in the Glasgow Merchant City. Recently it was modernised and given a huge make over. Before the upgrade it was a pretty scary place after dark. Now it's really safe.
However, there are stories in Glasgow of an old lady who appears in your locked car when you go to head home. She fakes an illness and then asks you drive her to the hospital. On the way she makes you take a back road. After a while she gets you to stop the car and kills you with an axe hidden under your car seat.
The story is apparently told across the world in different forms but even now I get a chill down my spine whenever I park in Candleriggs.
