Divinely selected places have secrets and mysteries within them that cannot be explained. They are found around the world in the most obscure corners. Hand-picked extraordinary places have been curated so that we, with Mysterious Adventures Tours, can divulge their wonder. With awe, we will then explore them … together. Hence, we are proud to offer you a journey to Scotland, with all its mysteries and majesties, escorted by Rick McCallum.
Scotland is historically stunning and picturesque! Few destinations rival Scotland’s majesties of castles, mansions, and ancient public estates, all associated with a chilling history. We’re excited to offer this incredible journey, revealing the breath-taking Majesties of Scotland, brought forth by one of the most celebrated paranormal influencers in the industry, Rick McCallum.
Rick considers Scotland his second home, and will bring in his discoveries of wonders, reflections, and experiences that deems this ancient land as one of the most incredible in the world! With much research we have crafted an itinerary with much precision, selecting the most impressive destinations to explore … considered by most the most supernaturally ignited.
The trip will also engage one of Scotland's most dedicated group of Paranormal Investigators, Scotland Paranormal.

Rick McCallum has been a professional stuntman, actor, and stunt coordinator for over 35 years, and has more than 75 movie and TV projects to his name. Many include horror movies, most notably Hatchet 2 where he is chainsawed in half by his best friend Kane Hodder (famed for playing Jason Voorhees from several of the Friday 13th series). He has frequently played monsters or paranormal characters and done stunt doubling for many well-known actors, including Barry Bostwick, Oliver Platt, Christopher Noth, and Greg Evigan among many others.
Rick’s real passion is the paranormal which began at age 13 and has been a lifelong pursuit. While working on a movie in the haunted Ohio State Reformatory, he and Kane Hodder discovered a mutual interest in the paranormal and founded the Hollywood Ghost Hunters. Shortly, they added R.A. Mihailoff (starred as “Leatherface in “Texas Chainsaw Massacre Part 3”). With impressive results, the three appeared on the Travel Channel's #1 Paranormal TV show Ghost Adventures where they joined the GA’s crew in an investigation at the Pico House in Los Angeles.
Rick has validated his true-life experienced success in the field. In his new book, , Rick combines a unique and brilliant blend of stories of movies, ghost hunting, and humor as Rick recounts the extraordinary happenings in his life. He has ghost-hunted all over the United States, many times while on location for a movie. He has also investigated many of the most iconic haunted locations in the US, as well as Scotland, England, Ireland, and Australia. He considers Scotland his second home, enjoying annual multiple expeditions to this incredible land over the last six years. His keen and experienced spectral navigation in Scotland will be an incredible contribution as we explore its haunted majesties! After all, many say he’s an absolute ghost magnet!
