Watch: Security Camera Films Eerie 'Shadow Figure' in Scotland

By Tim Binnall

A home security system in Scotland captured footage of a shadowy form that proved to be so eerie to the person living in the residence that she enlisted a priest to bless the location. According to a local media report, the curious scene was filmed by a security camera watching over the yard of Maxine Hughes' house in Glasgow. In the video (which can be seen above), a puzzling dark mist can be seen seemingly manifesting in the air and then floating over the yard before vanishing. She also noticed a second anomaly briefly make an appearance in the footage a few seconds later.

Taken aback by what she was seeing in the security camera footage, Hughes initially shared the video with her sister, who posted it on social media in the hopes of determining what the oddity might have been. Apparently unsatisfied with the crowd-sourced solution to the mystery, as the homeowner decided that she would rather be safe than sorry and opted to bring in a priest to bless the house before the shadow figure, if it is some kind of sinister spirit, decided to stick around the residence.

Fortunately, the priest assured Hughes that she had nothing to worry about and took the necessary steps to bless the home just in case. While their actions likely gave the homeowner a measure of relief, we're guessing that skeptical observers will say that her concerns were unfounded in the first place as the security system likely just filmed a bug or something similarly prosaic. With that in mind, what's your take on the footage? Share you thoughts with us at the C2C Facebook page.
