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 : Dunstaffnage Castle

Dunstaffnage Castle is a partially ruined castle that lies 3 miles (4.8 km) from the town of Oban. It perches on a platform of conglomerate rock on a promontory at the south-west of the entrance to Loch Etive, and is surrounded on three sides by the sea. It was built by the MacDougall lords of Lorn, in the 13th century, making it one of Scotland's oldest castles.

 Dunstaffnage is maintained by Historic Scotland, and is open to the public.

Flora Macdonald was held prisoner at Dunstaffnage Castle after she helped Bonnie Prince Charlie escape from Scotland following the disastrous defeat at the Battle of Culloden.

Today, a female figure is often seen walking the ramparts. It is said that she foretells good or bad events by either smiling or weeping. Should you see her you had better hope she is smiling at you.
