Haunt #1 - Ghosts
Sightings of several ghosts have been reported at Dunnottar, including the apparition of a girl, around 13 years old and dressed in a dull plaid-type dress, a young deer hound, and a tall Scandinavian-looking man.

On a precipitous sea-girt promontary, Dunnottar Castle is one of the most spectacular medieval castles in Scotland, long a property of the Keith Earls Marischal, scene of the famous siege involving the Scottish Crown Jewels, and with an impressive fortified entrance.

The site of Dunnottar Castle has been an important settlement for well over a thousands years. Its early history saw attacks from Danes and Angles as well from the native Picts whilst in the later Medieval period its coastal location made it an easy target for conquering English forces. The castle was largely destroyed during the Wars of Three Kingdoms.
