Welcome to Rosslyn Castle a very haunted Scottish location.
The St Clare (Sinclair) family have held the lands of Roslin since 1280. The first castle built on these lands can be dated to either the late 14th or early 15th century.
The courtyard was entered via a drawbridge over an artificial ditch when first constructed, a far cry from the amazing approach we see today.
Today we only see a small portion of what would’ve been an imposing yet stunning castle, with many ruined parts now clearly visible. This is little wonder due to harsh Scottish weather, various attacks and one too many fires through the ages.
St Monans Auld Kirk dates back to around the year 875 when Saint Monan was buried here.
It was said that King David II – after being injured at the battle of Neville’s Cross by a Bow (17 October 1346) – visited the exact site and ordered a Kirk be built after a miraculous recovery from his injuries.
Castle Menzies is a spectacular sixteenth century castle which was restored by the Menzies Clan Society. This has been the Seat of the Chiefs of Clan Menzies for over 400 years and importantly situated, it was involved in the turbulent history of the Highlands. Bonnie Prince Charlie, the Stuart Pretender to the throne, rested for two nights in the Castle on his way to the Battle of Culloden in 1746. It is located a little to the west of the small village of Weem, near Aberfeldy in the Perthshire highlands, close to the former site of Weem Castle, destroyed c. 1502.
Situated on the southern outskirts of Scotland’s Capital City sits the impressive and superbly preserved castle named Craigmillar. The former fortified residence of the Preston’s and latter, leading Edinburgh lawyer Sir John Gilmour, this romantic location casts a stunning shadow south of the world-famous Edinburgh Castle.
Haunted Scotland thought that Linlithgow & Blackness had nook and crannies galore, that was till we braved the wintry Scottish weather in 2013 and undertook a search for the ghostly white woman said to haunt the castle grounds, along with any other spectre that may be lurking around within.
We have an updated experience from this location from Rich1842, who has witnessed the white lady, and held on to the information at the time…….
The Old Ship Inn, was Established in 1665 in the city of Perth in Scotland. The stunning little public house – which incidentally is Perth oldest one – sits at 31 Hight St in Perth, not far from the famous River Tay, that runs through this part of Scotland.
In times gone by, this location would have been a second home to sailors who would come off the ships on the Tay, and as they do, had a jolly old-time while moored.
