In mid-August 1975 Jack and Gwen Mott were staying in the Salutation Hotel in Perth, Scotland, during a touring holiday. The hotel has associations with Bonnie Prince Charlie (though frankly most older buildings in Scotland seem to). During the night they slept in single beds on either side of the bedroom door.
The night was very hot; suddenly Jack felt that his back was cold. He had been lying on his side with his back to the door. When he turned over he saw the figure of a Scottish soldier standing next to the door, unmoving but apparently quite solid. He was wearing green tartan and seemed not at all frightening. In fact Jack was able to turn over and go back to sleep without fear. At a later point Jack woke up again and turned back and the soldier was still there exactly as before. Gradually the soldier faded away.
Gwen was quite regretful that she had not been woken by her husband as she felt that she would have liked to have seen the ghost.
