Rockhall Tower House
The tower house, now a hotel, is an altered 17th century tower-house built by Sir William Grierson. The tower-house reputed to be haunted by the spectre of a whistle-blowing monkey, the spirit of Sir Robert Grierson’s pet, which was killed by servants after his death.
Sir Robert was unpopular during his occupancy in the late 1600s, perhaps for his relentless persecution of the covenanters. Legend says that a phantom coach and horses came to claim his soul after his death.
