If you’ve been to Stirling Castle, you’ll have more than likely heard all about its history. After being attacked 16 times, you can imagine it’s seen its fair share of bloodshed – so it’s no surprise that there’s a few ghouls hanging about here as well.
With footsteps heard often by military officers who used the castles, to a male ghost in a highland kilt. There are also two ladies who haunt the castle, one of whom is the Pink Lady (not an apple), who is seen leaving the castle grounds to head to the nearby Church of the Holy Rude. Some believe her to be a survivor of a 1304 siege of the castle – in search of her lost husband. The other is the Green Lady, often seen as a precursor of trouble to come, as she has been seen before fires or other incidents.
