Dustaffnage Castle, situated on Loch Etive, was built on the site of an old fortress that was certainly in existence before the Roman Occupation of Britain. The castle is haunted by the ghost of a lady known as "The Scanniag" or "Elle Maid". She has been seen sometimes dressed in white, sometimes in green.

The reason for her haunting is unknown but she often appeared when the Campbells controlled Dustaffnage and showed signs of sorrow immediately before the death of members of the Campbell Family, and joy before an event that was to bring them happiness. She also used to annoy people by pulling off their bedclothes and often woke up family and guests by stamping up and down the floor. In particularly, she seemed to enjoy teasing children in their beds.
