We love a ghost hunt in a castle and the very haunted Comlongon Castle in Dumfries and Galloway promises to be an astounding location….
Haunted Comlongon Castle History
Comlongon Castle today is a renowned niche hotel specialising in quiet getaways. However its past has not always been so tranquil, and this 15th Century location has been at the heart of many centuries of blood soaked border conflict and bitter dispute. It is hard to imagine that this now relaxing and peaceful location was once on the front line of one of the bitterest conflicts Britain has ever experienced. The castle keep and dungeon give clues to it’s bloody past…
Comlongon has it’s tragic tale of the distressed Lady Marion Carruthers who jumped to her death and she can be seen mostly near the anniversary of her death. However the ongoing sightings of numerous apparitions are astounding. Many rooms of the castle hotel are haunted with the apparition of an old lady who sits in a chair and a window that opens and closes on it’s own. Many wedding parties have observed apparitions disappear into thin air in front of them. Staff at the castle tell of regular strange experiences that would chill you to the bone where some guests have even asked to change room or be relocated off site.
