Overlooking the village of Airth, a 30-minute drive away from Glasgow, Airth Castle dates back to the 14th century and was once owned by the family of Robert the Bruce. There are 125 rooms and suites at the castle – and some have some chilling stories.

Room 9 is allegedly home to the ghost of a nanny and two children who died in a fire, it is said that some people can hear the youngsters running and screaming about the corridors.

Ladies who are brave enough to pay a visit to the downstairs toilets may even see the spirits of these lost souls, as this is where their room was originally located.

Over in Room 14, reports of a maid screaming while being attacked and left for dead by her master have been heard on several occasions, where heavy footsteps are known to approach the door before suddenly falling silent.
