Castle Of Park

Region : Dumfries and Galloway
Location : Glenluce
Details : Thomas Hay built this tower house in 1590 after being given the lands of Park by his father, the last abbot of Glenluce. In the 1970s, after standing empty for over a century, the tower was repaired by Historic Scotland, Plans of the castle may be viewed on the landmarktrust website.
Paranormal Phenomena : It is alleged that a green lady appears in an upstairs window. The folklore tells that she is a servant who was dismissed from her post because she was expecing a child and subsequently committed suicide.
Another alleged apparition in the castle is a monk who was reputedly murdered by being walled up in the castle. Residents say they feel as though they are being watched – and objects mysteriously move from one room to another.

  1. Istayed at Castle of Park over Christmas for a week with my husband a few years back. It was the scariest and nerve wracking time ever.From the time we arrived there was a menacing atmosphere about the place.
    Some of the things happening were hearing footsteps rushing down the stairs ,a feeling of being watched and the downstairs below kitchen stairs were avoided because there was such an eerie atmosphere.I had to have the lights on all night ,as the bedroom was just overpowering with it.I got the immpression in my mind of two women just quickly going into a room upstairs when I came up the stairs.
    I am not too easily spooked as I worked at the time for the company who rents out the castle and worked at one of their properties which is haunted but not in a very unpleasnt way as this.The property here was empty over Christmas and were able to stay in it rent free.If I was a paying guest I would be wanting my money back!
