Built circa 1874 by Colonel Skene and believed to be haunted by his wife, Skene Manor is a castle of a place, built of stone and open for guided tours. When the colonel’s wife passed away, according to local lore, the colonel chose to keep her body nearby. Some say he kept her in a lead-lined coffin in the basement; others say it was under the grand staircase. Furthermore, when the place became a restaurant, the coffin was behind the bar with a stone fountain around it, said to remain to this day. Witnesses claim to have seen an apparition of a lady in a Victorian gown near the fountain, wearing a large ring.
