Clashmore, Highland Region
On one occasion many years ago, Skibo Castle was left in the sole
charge of a manservant who one night persuaded his former sweetheart
to visit him at the castle.
the girl failed to return home that evening an intensive search
was made, including at the castle in spite of the protests of
the manservant. She was never found and shortly afterwards the
servant left the district.
afterwards people living in the castle were startled by screams
that were heard coming from the castle corridors and by the
sight of a young woman who always appeared to be in a state
of terror. Many years later some repairs were being made to
the castle, during which a young woman's bones were found in
the very spot where the apparition usually disappeared. The
remains were buried elsewhere and the apparitions ceased.
