The house is in dire need of renovation.

Police are investigating a mysterious fire at what is thought to be one of Scotland’s most haunted buildings.

Situated on moorland on the remote Shetland Islands to the north of Scotland, Windhouse in Mid Yell has been at the center of numerous ghost stories over the years.

Reportedly the most haunted building on the islands, the house is today little more than a ruin.

Accounts of paranormal phenomenon, including tales of a ghostly woman walking on the stairs, have prompted some foolhardy investigators to try and spend the night there.

The last time a family actually lived at the property was all the way back in 1930. The inhabitants reportedly left the house after it was hit by a lightning strike which also killed some of their sheep.

Since then there have also been reports of two skeletons being found there – one of a child found hidden behind the lining of one of the walls and another of a man found under the back doorstep.

This week’s fire, which caused further damage to the ruin, was quickly tackled by local fire crews however the exact cause of the blaze remains a mystery.

Authorities are now appealing for witnesses in an effort to determine what happened.
