Stirling Castle

The castle stands on volcanic rock overlooking the town of Stirling and the countryside . Mary , Queen of Scots was crowned in the old chapel in 1533 . The Pink Lady , a beautiful woman in a pink silk gown , has been seen many times at the castle . It may be Mary , Queen of Scots. Others say it is the ghost of a woman searching for her husband who hed been killed when Edward I captured the castle .

Crathes Castle

In the oldest part of the castle, the double tower, there is a room known as the Green Lady's Room, because of the several apparitions of this unknown woman with a baby. It is said that she's a member of the Burnett family, proprietor of the castle. 

These apparitions began after the discover of two skeletons, during renovation work : one of a woman and one of a baby. The baby is said to be the child of a man who preferred to kill the baby and the mother to hide their relationship.

The fact that the apparitions continue, even after the discover of the bodies means than the two poor beings will never be able to rest in peace.

Craigievar Castle

The Blue Bedroom is the haunt of one of the Gordon clan members, who fell from a window. He has been pushed to his death by "Red" Sir John Forbes, a noble. Several people heard the step of the unfortunate Gordon climbing the stairs to the Blue Bedroom, as if he was living the moment before his death again and again.

One of the other ghosts is one of a musician, who is very selective (he shows himself just to people with the name of Forbes). He fell in the moat of the castle and drowned.
