Shieldhill Castle

Insomniacs visiting Shieldhill Castle should listen for things going bump in the night, for behind the door of a certain room, someone is definitely not sleeping.

Shieldhill has parts dating back to the 12th Century, but 'the keep' is the part haunted by the Grey Lady, thought to be a daughter of the Chancellor Family, who owned the house until the 1950s.

The Lady herself came from the 17th Century, a time of religious persecution in Scotland, and may have been driven to suicide after being molested by soldiers passing through the area.

The more accepted story, however, is that she fell in love with a 'commoner' and when her father forbade the marriage the broken-hearted lass committed suicide. The Lady, wrapped in a grey cloak, prefers to keep to her own room, which is one of the bedrooms available to guests. Sleep in it if you dare!

Within the last two years a fully liveried butler has been seen by several guests within the Victorian wing of the castle going about his daily bsuiness. Will you see him?
