Perhaps one of the most haunted places in Scotland as it is connected to the Royal Mile by a network of underground tunnels. The ghost of The Lone Piper is said to stroll along the castle’s secret tunnels and the sounds of piping can be heard as he roams the area. It is believed the castle is also haunted by a drummer who only appears when the castle is about to be attacked.
