The Ghost of Edinample Castle, Lochearnhead

by James
(Southampton, UK)

Sir Duncan Campbell, seventh knight of Glenorchy was known as Black Duncan. He build Edinample Castle on the south shore of Loch Earn in the 16th century. Legend has it that he asked his architect to design a parapet so that he could walk safely around his roof to view the lands. Unfortunately, this important feature was missed out of the design and the architect fell to his death, having been pushed off the roof by his furious employer. Black Duncan avoided having to pay the poor fellow and his ghost is said to have been walking on the roof ever since.
