Top 3 - Most Haunted Places in Scotland
1. Tulloch Castle, Dingwall
This terrifying castle dates back to the 12th century! The most famous ghost of the castle is the Green Lady. 2. The Lodge at Edinbane, Isle of Skye
The Isle of Skye is very beautiful and… romantic! When you have a drink at the Lodge, you can see ghosts… drinking with you! Creepy! 3. Loch Ness, Highland
This lake, or “loch” in Scottish Gaelic, is very famous. The Loch Ness monster which haunts it is called “Nessie”. So cute!
There is also a supernatural water horse called the “kelpie” which haunts Scotland’s lochs and lonely rivers… Chilling! Of course, ghosts don’t really exist… Or do they?
