Spirits: Edzell Castle in Angus

Edzell Castle is a stunning semi-ruined 16th-century castle. It’s located close to Edzell, and is around 5 miles north of Brechin, in Angus, Scotland.

The Castle was constructed around 1520 by David Lindsay, the 9th Earl of Crawford, and then was expanded on by his son, Sir David Lindsay, Lord Edzell, who also laid out the garden in 1600’s.

The castle has long been associated with the apparition of the White Lady, believed by many to be the spirit of David Ogilvy’s wife, who was an Earl during the 1500’s.

The alleged story surrounding this mystery, suggests, that Mrs Ogilvy died of exposure to the elements, when she could not get back into the castle. Now her spirit is said to walk the surrounding areas of Edzell Castle, with many sightings by locals, and people passing by on their daily business.




“The castle has long been linked with the legend of the White Lady, believed to be the ghost of the wife of 15th Century Earl, David Ogilvy.”
