Skibo Castle Story

Near 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.

When 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.

Soon 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.
