Back in the day, castles were fortified structures built as an extravagant defence for monarchs to reside in opulently. In pop culture nowadays, they’re more often associated with fairytales and theme parks. Yet many of these great buildings are being converted to something equally as luxurious as their Middle Ages counterparts, in the form of hotels.
The average haunted castle may lay claim to a resident ghost who occasionally pops up to terrify an unsuspecting victim. Some have several dastardly ghouls on the prowl. Then there’s Dragsholm Castle. Allegedly home to over 100 ghosts and poltergeists, the Danish castle is known to be the most haunted castle in Europe.
It might bear a very similar resemblance to the Monarch of the Glen estate Ardverikie, but Glenapp Castle is its own and quite different little sanctuary in the Scottish countryside. Both buildings were finished at exactly the same time in 1870, though some may say Glenapp has more charm about it.
