The Haunting of Auchen Castle Hotel
Sir Humphrey de Kirkpatrick built the Auchen Castle Hotel back in 1220…
Of course it wasn’t a hotel back then!
Over the centuries the historic castle came under the ownership of the Clan Johnstone and the Youngers brewery family.
Today, the castle is a luxurious hotel in which many famous and important people have stayed.
The hotel is said to be haunted by a young girl…
Members of staff and guests alike have reported seeing a ghostly apparition of a small child running along the hotel’s corridors, on the staircase and in the hotel’s grounds.
These sightings all happened in the early hours of the morning!
