In what sounds very much like a rejected episode of ‘The Twilight Zone‘, a Scottish couple is offering a tasty $84,000 salary who can work as a nanny while living in their (get this) ~haunted house~.

The pair is looking for an au pair (sorry) who can work as both a live-in nanny and a housekeeper in their home in the Scottish Borders, which just so happens to be apparently chock-full of bloody ghosts.

In an ad posted on, they say they are offering the aforementioned quite substantial salary, a room with an ensuite and private kitchen, and 28 paid days off a year in the hopes of retaining someone that won’t flee at the first sign of supernatural terror, like the previous ones have:

“We have lived in our home for nearly 10 years. We were told it was ‘haunted’ when we bought it, but kept our minds open and decided to buy the house regardless. 5 nannies have left the role in the last year, each citing supernatural incidents as the reason, including strange noises, broken glass and furniture moving. 

“This has obviously been a period of great upheaval for our children. We haven’t personally experienced any supernatural happenings, as they have been reported only while we’ve been out of the house, but 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.”

If you’re qualified to look after a 5-year-old and a 7-year-old, don’t mind moving to Scotland, and have no qualms about being stuck in some sort of nightmare ‘The Conjuring‘-type situation, you can check out the listing here.
