Cross Keys Hotel, Peebles
This Coaching Inn dating from 1693 is located in the centre of Peebles and is probably the town's oldest building. Bedroom 5 is said to be haunted by the ghost of a woman called Marion Ritchie who was the first Landlady of the Cross Keys and this is where she reputedly died. It is thought that Sir Walter Scott would visit The Cross Keys modeled his character Meg Dodds from his Waverly novels on her. The haunting would appear to have had a lot of poltergeist like activity.
