Ethie Castle, Scotland
Ethie Castle stands, not far from the town of Arbroath and dates from the 15th century. A certain Cardinal Beaton, who was the Abbot of Arbroath commissioned the castle to be built and he lived there with his mistress, Marion Ogilvy for several years.
Cardinal Beaton was a very powerful advocate of the catholic faith and apparently made a point of prosecuting Protestants at every opportunity and this made him a much hated man especially amongst the Protestants and in some ways inevitably he was murdered by Protestant nobles in the castle on the 29th of May 1546 AD.
A second reported ghost at Ethie Castle was that of a young child which could be heard crying on occasions deep into the night. People also reported hearing the sound of a toy being pulled on wheels along the floor in another room of the castle. Eventually, excavations were carried out to try and solve this particular mystery and a small skeleton was discovered alongside the remains of a toy wooden cart.
After the skeleton was removed from the castle and given a Christian burial, the sound of the child was no longer heard.
