Edinburgh Castle – Ten Most Haunted Places

This castle is reputed to be the home of many ghosts. Counted among the ghosts are a piper, a headless drummer and a dog.

According to legend, the young piper had been sent into a series of tunnels leading beneath the castle. To keep the others appraised of his location he took his pipes. When the pipes suddenly stopped playing a search ensued but nothing was ever found of the young boy. Now his pipes can be heard echoing throughout the castle.

However, should you visit, don’t expect to hear from the headless drummer boy. The legend says he only plays to warn of an attack upon the castle. There is also a dog cemetery on the castle grounds where it is claimed that the ghosts of a dog have been seen roaming many times.

    Edinburgh Castle is great. It’s so archaic, it’s a great place to take pictures and videos.
