Cessnock Castle


The castle dates from the 15th century, and was a stronghold of the Campbell's. The castle was converted to a mansion house much later in its history.

Mary Queen of Scots is said to have come to the castle after her defeat at the battle of Langside (the site of which is also said to be haunted). One of her ladies in waiting died during her brief stay and she is said to haunt the castle.

Another roaming spirit is said to be that of John Knox, who wanders the castle preaching sermons.
