The keep is haunted by the ghosts of three cavalier officers executed on the orders of Cromwell after escaping from the POW compound – three police officers came across them in the winter of 1982 – a chilling story!

From the castle ramparts you can see Waddow Hall, where the ghost of Peg O’O'Nell resides, she was murdered by her cruel master in 1798.

At the Swan and Royal Hotel the ghost of a young girl who took her own life in 1879 is known to walk on the hotel’s top floor. There is plenty of other ghostly activity here as you will discover.
