Haunt #1 - Ghost
One is said to be the spectre of Alexander Hamilton. He was a beggar, who was accused of witchcraft after cursing the lady of the house and her eldest daughter. They both died from a mysterious illness, after they had thrown Hamilton off their property. He was executed in Edinburgh, and his ghost is said to have been witnessed near the castle
Haunt #2 - Ghost

It may be the spirit of John Cockburn, who had apparently committed – or been the victim of – a murder.

Standing in a walled garden, Penkaet Castle consists of an altered 16th-century tower house, which was extended in the 17th century. It consists of a very long main block of two storeys and a garret, with small projecting wings at both ends. A round stair-tower stands in the centre of one side. The east wing is dated 1628.
