Myth and Legend: The Best Supernatural Landmarks of Scotland

Castle Fraser

Located in beautiful Aberdeenshire, Castle Fraser belongs to the National Trust of Scotland, which means that it is open for visitors and events most of the year. Previously owned by the lords of Fraser, the castle was built in 1575 and was passed down in the family for centuries, until the last heir died in 1897. A gruesome legend has it that a young woman was killed inside the castle, and dragged down a set of stone steps, leaving them smeared with blood. No one could wash the blood away, so they simply covered the stairs with wood panelling. Visit the castle to see if you, like some others, can feel the presence of the young woman’s ghost.
