  1. The staircase in the Talbot is rumoured to be the one from the nearby Fotheringham Castle, where Mary Queen of Scots was inprisoned and executed. Her son King James VI had the castle destroyed and the building materials were used in local buildings. Local legend suggests her spirit came with the materials.
