Halloween at Craigievar Castle, Aberdeenshire
Join the Scottish Ghost Nights team for a very special Halloween at Craigievar Castle in Aberdeenshire. This atmospheric castle is an incredible treat for a spooky Halloween night. With only 16 places this is a must for any ghost hunter!
This fairytale Scottish castle, said to have inspired the Walt Disney trademark castle, has been in the Forbes family for over 350 years. With tales of ‘Red’ Sir John, ancient clan feuds and murder most foul this could be an eventful night. Visit the Blue Room (‘the ghost room’) where it is said that there are human forms that move in the shadows and doors that open and close on their own. There are also stories of ghostly cocktail parties filled with Scottish music and voices from the past; apparitions of children at play; and sleeves tugged when no one is there.
Nestled on a picturesque hillside, the elegant pink tower of Craigievar Castle is spellbindingly beautiful, sure to enchant children and adults alike.
Begun in the Scottish Baronial style around 1576, this iconic tower house is among the best preserved and the most loved in Scotland; its exterior remains virtually unchanged since William Forbes completed it c1626. Craigievar was a family home until the 1960s, creating a quirky blend of cosy interiors and rare antiquities within the ancient walls.
In accordance with the former owner’s wishes, artificial light has not been installed in the upper floors. This means that the castle’s extensive collection of historic artefacts and art is seen in the shifting light from the sun, exactly as they would have been when they were made. It also makes for the perfect Halloween at Craigievar Castle!
Join us for Halloween at Craigievar Castle and take part in 5hrs of ghostly investigation to see if the tales are true!
