Ghost stories begin at the 15:23 mark, but the entire video is fascinating. I have a passion for castles and love a good haunting story. I'm sure some you do as well.
If you live near a haunted castle...I'm jealous. Lol
Enjoy and let me know what you think.

Love Stirling Castle, been there a few times. Stirling is the Gateway to the Trossachs.
Gordi will be along shortly I'm sure

Hi Jane! I went to find a youtube vid to see what the heck Trossachs was. LOL
Gorgeous!

I envy anyone who has been to the castle or the Trossachs.

Yes, hopefully our Gordi will arrive.

I love all of our castles here in Scotland, The only problem is most were built on places that were either high up or hard to get to because of one obstacle or another. The older I get the harder they are for me to get to.

There are a couple of castles local to me. Cadzow, Murdostoun, and Craignethan. Although Murdostoun was more of a tower house than a castle. There's also a tower house that you can rent for a week or whatever a few miles from me calledThe tower of Halbar

All have tales of the supernatural.

Great post! I love Stirling Castle... Definitely allows one to get 'lost' in the past... You can feel history almost as if it is a living entity in every crevice.

I loved Stirling when I went there..I was most amazed at William Wallace's suit of armor which looked too large for my 6' 5" 350 lbs frame, although I was there with a Aussie who is 6' 10" and 330 lbs ( the guy that played the first opponent of Brad Pitt in the movie Troy ) and he looked like the perfect fit....Mel Gibson was undercast for the role...hehe

Oh darlin’, you’re one of the few, that can just call me KK. 🤗

My god! if those walls could talk!

I’ve always had a huge connection to the William Wallace story. Amazing seeing where the true battle of Sterling transpired. Thank you!

You can see very prevalently, all the different time periods of additions and restorations To the castle complex.

I always gravitate to the oldest. But to be perfectly honest, this place dates back to the 1100’s. So EVERY piece of its history is — absolutely fascinating!!!

Great post S & F for a very interesting place. The hundreds of years of history behind that place is amazing, and things/events that took place there....no wonder it's haunted. I'd love to see it someday. I can't remember which ghost hunting show went and did an investigation there, but I remember they got quite a bit of evidence including some really good class A evp's, one of which was a loud growl hissing noise that was somewhat disturbing. I wonder if anyone has tried using one of those SLS cameras or full spectrum cameras? That might produce some interesting evidence. Thanks for sharing!

I didn’t...

Just peed in your cabbage patch and chomped the heads of 3 carrots...

All is washable.

Dates back a lot longer than that, as do most hilltop castles in Scotland. Iron age at least. Perfect places for fortification. They just built bigger over the years.

I’d love to go with my metal detector!

Here in France I live in the Loire Valley which is home to many famous castles... got some interesting finds.

Next Autumn I am spending 3 weeks exploring the Cathare area in the South.
