Unexplained breathing noises have been heard in Threave Castle: some have suggested a supernatural origin.

On an island in the River Dee in a scenic spot, Threave Castle consists of a massive brooding ruinous tower, some 100 foot tall, built by Archibald the Grim, Earl of Douglas, in the 14th century but finally attacked and then slighted and abandoned after a siege in 1640.
