The Castle of Mey stands in the very far north of Scot-
land, a few miles from John o’ Groats. The castle is haunted by a green lady who appears in a room at the top of the old tower. She is said to be the ghost of a young woman of the Sinclair family. She fell in love with a local lad, a farmworker. A lad such as this, of the
humblest of origins, was considered by the girl’s father to be a most undesirable suitor for his daughter. He sought to put an end to the relationship and confined his daughter to the tower until she saw sense. It is said that when the girl leaned out of the window to try to catch a glimpse of her sweetheart working in the fields in the dis-
tance, she lost her balance, toppled over and fell to her death from the tower.
