Seasonal special ghosts

Seasonal special ghosts only appear for brief periods (24–48 hours) at particular times of the year. A few may stick around for a short while longer. They can always be found in all non-raiding locations in Virtual Scotland.

Some seasonal special ghosts marked a single special occasion or event and may never recur.


Seasonal special ghosts give you either a fixed amount of XP (experience points) and ££ (Ghost Trapper pounds) or XP and ££ that vary across a small range.

Retired special ghosts

Some special ghosts have marked one-off occasions, or marked the birthday of staff members who no longer work for Diviad. These ghosts have been retired — some of them are no longer visible in your ghost photos. A retired ghost, by definition, will not be seen again, although a more modern version of certain retired ghosts may appear later.

New Year's and Anniversary ghosts

While the New year's ghost and the Anniversary ghost appear each year, the pictures associated with them change each year.

Special circumstances and the midnight hour

A few of the seasonal special ghosts have apparently decided that their time in Virtual Scotland is too limited, and that they are willing to break the taboo against them for the midnight hour.

The special ghosts that have been known to appear during the midnight hour include:

Catching the special seasonal ghosts

How do you catch a special seasonal ghost? Many agents have become frustrated when they pull out their best potions or mocktails and don't even catch a glimpse of one of the special seasonals.

The trick is to remember that these ghosts almost always have a scare factor of "Weak". Until Valentine's day 2012, the best advice for attracting these ghosts was "don't use Nessy's golden reserve when you're trying to catch them. Use a low attraction-level magic potion to bring them to your trap."

Since Valentine's day 2012, the alternative advice (when low attraction-level bait doesn't seem to be working) seems to be, "If you have them and are willing to do so, use Nessy's Golden Reserve when you are trying to attract the seasonal special ghosts."
