This 12th century castle, home to the Davidson Clan only since 1762, has a history packed with violence, drama and romance, and ghosts to match. There’s not merely a grey lady, but a green one. There are also two ghostly prank-playing children who woke one Room Eight guest by sitting on his chest and almost suffocating him (according to his account), a long-dead chambermaid who paces up and down the Pink Room and a tall, dark Scotsman, believed to have been the owner of the castle many hears hence, who is sometimes seen wandering in the Great Hall. Paranormal investigators have recorded temperature changes, light anomalies, disembodied voices, the switching on and off of lights and other poltergeist activity.

Throughout the whole castle there’s a deliciously gloomy-yet-snug theme of tartan, leather, plush antique fabric, hunting trophies and atmospheric lighting, all of which sets off the secret passages, huge fireplaces, high ceilings and oak panelling a treat.

Book yourself into a four poster room, have a locally sourced Highland dinner and then round off the evening with the hotel’s own ghost tour, during which you’ll learn about the Green Lady and see her portrait in the Great Hall, before turning in for the night…
