Scotland has a wealth of haunted castles, houses, hotels and graveyards. Here is one that you might like to visit . . . if you are brave enough!!

Haunted Place : Glamis Castle

Glamis Castle is situated beside the village of Glamis in Angus, Scotland. It has been the family home of the Earls of Strathmore since 1372, when King Robert II of Scotland (the first of the Stuart Kings) gave the castle to Sir John Lyon. Glamis Castle was the childhood home of Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, the Queen Mother. Her second daughter, Princess Margaret, was born there.

Over the years many legends and myths have been weaved around the castle. King Malcolm II was said to have been murdered there in the 11th century. Lady Janet Douglas, widow of Lord Glamis, was burned at the stake as a witch in 1540 by James V – apparently for trying to kill the king. It is said that there is a secret room where a nobleman, Count Beardie, played cards with Satan. Around 1816 the Monster of Glamis, a hideously deformed child, was born to the family. The monster was kept locked in a suite of rooms which were bricked up after its death.

The mysterious wailing that is often heard around the castle is thought to be the sad and lonely cry of the monster’s spirit as it seeks a way from its cruel prison to the afterlife.
