Is Glamis Castle Haunted
Glamis Castle is situated beside the village of Glamis, in Angus, Scotland. It’s the home of the Earl and Countess of Strathmore and Kinghorne.
The castle has been the home of the Lyon family since the 14th century, though the present building dates largely from the 17th century. Glamis was the childhood home of Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother.
The estate surrounding the castle covers more than 57 square kilometres (14,000 acres) and, in addition to parks and gardens, produces several cash crops including lumber and beef.
There are two streams running through the estate, one of them the Glamis Burn.
The vicinity of Glamis Castle has prehistoric traces; for example, a noted intricately carved Pictish stone – known as the Eassie Stone – was found in a creek-bed at the nearby village of Eassie.
Like much of Angus, the area is rich in history and the lands certainly date back to the Pictish people.
My main focus for Glamis Castle, in terms of the mysteries and paranormal events, are purely in connection with the seen apparitions in the area.
I’m aware of various myths and legends associated with the castle, but see these more of ignorance towards birth defects, and Chinese whispers.
The real meat on the bone is the rich historical grounds, earth energies associated as the Picts were well aware of, and the abundance of witness reports dating back over the centuries with regards to wandering spirits and various activity.
Glamis Castle is known as one of the most haunted castles in Britain, and is it any wonder with the abundance of well known historical figures who have attended this location.
Where we find such history, and emotional connections, we find a plethora of mysterious activity.
The Castle has never been known to confirm the paranormal activity of the area, with little interest in this topic the most likely reason.
Having spent some time here on a stunning Monday morning, it’s clear to see the location certainly does not need any such publicity in this area, as this estate is very much busy, and well visited for its history and beauty alone.
The family chapel is alleged to be haunted by what people describe as a Grey Lady, who is said to be the spirit of Lady Janet Douglas, who was burned at the stake as a witch on Castle Hill, in Edinburgh around 1537.
Her apparition has been seen by a number of witnesses at the chapel and at the Clock Tower.
The spirit of a woman with a missing tongue is said to haunt the grounds. She runs around the estate pointing at her supposedly mutilated face.
A young black boy, the ghost of a servant from around 200 years ago, haunts a stone seat by the door of the Queen’s bedroom.
One of the more infamous spirits is known as Earl Beardie, allegedly a cruel and wicked man, probably stemming from his rebellion against King James II.
His apparition is said to wander the castle, and there have been reports of children waking to find his figure leaning over their beds.
