The Dalhousie Castle Hotel and Spa
The historic Dalhousie Castle and Spa near the town of Bonnyrigg dates back to the 13th century.
It’s said to be haunted by a number of ghosts…
The two main ghostly apparitions witnessed at the Dalhousie Castle Hotel are those of Sir Alexander Ramsay and Lady Catherine.
Sir Alexander Ramsay was starved to death back in 1342 in Hermitage Castle by William Douglas. His ghostly apparition is witnessed in the corridors and grounds of the Dalhousie Castle Hotel.
The ghost of Lady Catherine has been witnessed in the dungeon and around the turrets of the castle… she is referred to as the Grey Lady!Click Here to Stay in the Dalhousie Castle Hotel and Spa
The Pittodrie House Hotel
The Pittodrie House Hotel is located in the countryside just to the east of Chapel of Garioch near Inverurie.
The hotel is in fact a former Tower House which dates back to the 17th century and belonged to the Erskine family.
Every Halloween eerie cries for help are heard coming from the staircase.
It’s said that the phantom cries are from a former maid of the house who fell to her death whilst trying to escape from a fire which had engulfed the building.
Pittodrie House has another ghostly figure which is often seen by terrified witnesses in the library.
And sometimes a phantom horse and carriage has been seen pulling up on the house’s driveway.Click Here to Stay in the Pittodrie House Hotel
The Tulloch Castle Hotel
You’ll find the Tulloch Castle Hotel on Tulloch Castle Drive in the Highlands town of Dingwall.
The Category A listed castle dates back to the mid-16th century.
Both members of staff and guests alike have reported seeing the ghostly apparitions of a middle aged woman and a little girl wandering around the hotel.
The main ghost witnessed at Tulloch Castle is that of the Green Lady who’s said to be Elizabeth Davidson.
Elizabeth Davidson was the daughter of Duncan Davidson the 4th Laird of Tulloch.
She fell down the stairs and tragically died after witnessing her father with another woman.
Her portrait hangs in the Great Hall if you ever want to see the face of the infamous Green Lady.
Her ghostly apparition is mainly seen by terrified witnesses in the bar area of the Tulloch Castle Hotel…
In fact, the bar is actually called the Green Lady Bar after her!Click Here to Stay in the Tulloch Castle Hotel
