Haunted Scotland 2017 takes you on a ghostly experience to some of the country's most haunted locations!
The tour begins in Edinburgh with a visit to Rosslyn Chapel; built in 1446, the chapel is haunted by the apprentice who carved the Apprentice Pillar and was murdered by his jealous teacher. A ghost walk includes two of the oldest sections
of the city: Grassmarket and Greyfriars Kirkyard.
Glamis Castle, in addition to being the childhood home of the Queen Mother, is also the most haunted castle in Scotland—boasting a Grey Lady, a White Lady, and a room in which Earl Beardie played cards with the Devil himself!
Fyvie Castle is believed to have been built by William the Lion in 1211. During 1920 renovations, the remains of a woman were found behind a bedroom wall. When the remains were buried, there began an ongoing series of “disturbances” in the castle. The Laird had the woman disinterred and returned to her original resting place.
Huntly Castle, an architechtural masterpiece of a ruin, has had many famous guests including Robert the Bruce,
Mary Queen of Scots, was the headquarters for the Covenanting Army in 1640 and for the Government army against the
Jacobites in 1746.
Elgin Cathedral, the “Lantern of the North,” has many tales to tell of the sad lives of past residents of Elgin. A private tour led by Lady Marjorie recounts the stories of the local legends.
Culloden Battlefield, the site of the last battle fought on British soil, has witnessed a number of visions of the battle, especially at the Well of the Dead and the clan memorials.
Dornoch Witch’s Stone marks the spot where the last execution for witchcraft took place in 1722.
Clava Cairns, a very atmospheric site in a wooded location, is home to the remains of three large chambered burial cairns along with their associated stone circles, dating from about 1600 BC.
Eilean Donan Castle, the most photographed castle in Scotland, is a reconstruction of the one that was destroyed in 1719. The castle was garrisoned by William Mackenzie with Spanish troops, all of whom were blown up by Government forces. One of those is said to haunt the castle, and carries his head under his arm!
Culzean Castle was built on a cliff in 1777 incorporating an ancient tower that was a Kennedy stronghold. Full of architechtural marvels, it was given to the National Trust for Scotland in 1945 asking that an apartment be set aside for anyone whom Scotland might wish to honor, the first being General Eisenhower. A ghostly piper is said to play on stormy nights when he's seen exploring caves beneath the cliff.
Glasgow Cathedral is on the site of the church built by St Mungo; it was rebuilt in 1197 after a fire in the lower church. St Mungo was buried here in 613, his tomb standing under a fan-vaulted ceiling among a forest of pillars.
