Summary - Burkers' coach on display at Tulliemet; supernatural happenings in the house.

Andrew Stewart was born in Tulliemet, near Pitlochry, where his father had a small farm. There was a burkers' coach on display there, which his father had bought. His brothers and sisters used to play in an old church nearby, and at midnight, in their beds, they would hear their own voices shouting and playing there. There was a window in their attic, and if anyone shut it, or even tried to nail it shut, it would always be open the next day.
