Join our Scottish Ghost Nights team as they travel to Dundee and seek out the Ghosts of Mains Castle. A stunning 16th century castle with spooky secrets to tell.
History of Mains Castle
The property originally belonged to the Stewarts, then the Douglas Earls of Angus from the 14th century, but passed in 1530 to the Grahams, who built the castle. One of the family, Sir David Graham, nephew of Cardinal Beaton, was executed for plotting to restore Catholicism to Scotland in around 1592. The Grahams had a burial vault at Old Mains remodelled from the transept of the old church. There are old memorials in the burial ground, dating from the 17th century and later. The property was sold to the Erskines in the 19th century, then to James Caird, a wealthy jute manufacturer, before being given to the City of Dundee in 1913. Although ruined and derelict for many years, it was restored in the 1980s. The grounds have been a public park (Caird Park) since 1923.
Ghosts of Mains Castle
The castle is reputed to be haunted, and manifestations are said to include unexplained voices, furniture being moved by itself, and dark presences. It is said to be home to the spirit of a woman brutally murdered by her husband, this eerie 16th century building is the setting for a number of other paranormal experiences with spirits of several ghostly occupants including a very young child, servants and former prisoners.
