A Scottish couple placed an ad for a nanny, offering a £50,000 ($63,000) yearly salary, after five nannies quit in the past year because of “supernatural incidents,” The Scottish Sun reported last week.

The couple posted the ad on on May 29, 2017. The posting stated they have two children ages 5 and 7. The couple described their home as “spacious, historic property with spectacular views.” When they bought the home ten years ago, they were told it was “haunted.” In the posting, the couple specified that five nannies quit in the past year because of “strange noises, broken glass and furniture moving.”

“We haven’t personally experienced any supernatural happenings, as they have been reported only while we’ve been out of the house,” they said. “We’re happy to pay above the asking rate, and feel it’s important to be as up-front as possible to find the right person.”

The posting said that since both parents work, the nanny will often be alone with the children in the house described as “haunted.”

Richard Conway, founder and CEO of, confirmed the legitimacy of the post to The Telegraph. His employees were doubtful when they first saw the posting, but they confirmed with the family’s previous nannies to ensure the post was real.

“The family has assured us that no harm has come to anyone living in the house, however, the nanny will have to have a strong disposition,” said Conway.

The Jedburgh, Roxburghshire couple offered a 28 day holiday as part of the lucrative deal. Their house is not the only reportedly haunted edifice in the Jedburgh region of Scotland.

The show Most Haunted devoted an episode to the Jedburgh Castle Jail. The castle was built in 1820 and is currently a museum dedicated to showing 19th-century prison life. There have been several unsubstantiated reports claiming the museum is haunted.

“I have never seen anything myself, but now and again I’ll get a weird feeling when I’m passing some of the cells,” said Mitch McFarlane, a worker at the Jedburgh Castle Jail and Museum. “We hold ghost tours and seances here all the time and people can stay overnight.”

The museum’s potential status as haunted has not prevented visitors from frequenting the jail, and it appears the claim that the Jedburgh couple bought a haunted house will not ward off potential nannies.

“We have been overwhelmed by the response and have received over 2,000 messages in relation to the position,” the updated posting said Tuesday. “It has been a difficult time for us recently and the number of applicants and messages offering support and help are hugely appreciated.”
