The two main ghosts are that of Lady Catherine (The Grey Lady), and Alexander Ramsay of Dalhousie. Ramsay was imprisoned here and left to starve; some say he survived two weeks merely by eating bits of grain that fell through the cracks.

  1. A few years ago I stayed there one night in the room with the well in the middle of the floor. My nightmare was a person standing in front of me. And a ghostly arm coming from behind a curtain beckoning the person to go to them I was so scared I didn’t sleep and spent night under the covers. Never again
