Spectacular 500-year-old castle could be yours as it goes up for sale – but you'll have to share it with a GHOST

January 26, 2022

A CASTLE that's 500 years old has gone up for sale – but you'll have to share it with a GHOST.

Visitors to the castle in Leuchars, Scotland claim it is haunted by Sir Andrew, the Baron of Earlshall, who lived in the property during the 17th century.


Many say they have heard the footsteps of the baron, also nicknamed "Bloody Bruce", particularly on the spiral staircase.

The nickname was earned after his victory at the Battle of Killiecrankie in 1689 during the Scottish Jacobite uprising.

The property itself is situated on 34 acres of land and is made up of 10 bedrooms, eight reception rooms, two dressing rooms, six bathrooms and three cottages across the grounds.

Many rooms are still decorated with historic memorabilia.

Notable features also include the original granite fireplace in the Great Hall, coats of arms of European royalty and Scottish noble families.

While all the windows were installed for defensive purposes with musket loops and smaller windows located in strategic places in case of attack.
