    Mystery of coffin in cellar to be solved
    Investigation at hotel
    Published: 23/06/2008

    A NORTH-EAST legend that claims the former owner of a hotel was entombed in the basement is set to be investigated.

    Kemnay hotelier Malcolm Edwards is to open up a cellar wall in the Burnett Arms after an infrared probe camera revealed what appears to be a framed photograph and a box.

    It is said former landlady Maggie Duffton died in 1931 and had three coffins made – one to be buried in a family grave in Kemnay churchyard and the other two, one containing her body and the other her money – to be walled-up in the depths of the hotel.

    Malcolm said: “There is something there.

    “The picture is hazy, but it’s definitely box-like.

    “There is also what appears to be a book or a photo propped at the far end.â€

    The headstone in Kemnay Cemetery.

    The Burnett Arms Hotel in Kemnay

    Pub landlord Malcolm Edwards

    SHE’S been seen floating about the lounge of a North-east hotel wearing a pink wedding dress.

    But the legend of the ghost of Maggie Duffton at Kemnay could soon be solved once and for all when a wall is knocked down.

    The Burnett Arms Hotel in Kemnay is said to be haunted by the ghost of former owner Maggie.

    Her coffin is rumoured to lie in a walled-up vault in the hotel cellar.

    Now hotel boss Malcolm Edwards, pictured, is determined to uncover what really lies behind the wall. Within the next few weeks, Malcolm intends to smash through into the vault and reveal the truth.

    He said: “We are intending to break down the wall in the near future and villagers are invited to come and watch.

    “It should be an exciting night.â€
