Baldoon Castle, United Kingdom

From series “The Most Mysterious Buildings (Houses, Palaces, Castles) in the World”
A true world leader in terms of mystical castles and palaces is the United Kingdom, as beautiful and mysterious legends are associated with literally every historic site of the country. Some legends don’t have confirmation, but the history of Baldoon Castle clearly isn’t one of them. There are many locals who have seen the ghost of a young girl living there. According to one legend, that’s a ghost of Janet, the successor of the famous nobleman, James Dalrymple.

By some quirk of fate she had to agree to marry David Dunbar, the son of Baldoon Castle owner, while the heart of the young maiden belonged to another boy. However, the planned wedding didn’t happen. On the appointed day the young bride was found stabbed in one of the rooms of the castle; girl's death remained a mystery. According to one version, she committed suicide, but many believe that the girl was rescued from suffering by her lover. The tragedy that occurred in the castle hundreds of years ago continues to remind of itself. Among the ruins of the castle tourists regularly see a ghost girl in a bloody wedding dress; the hateful castle became home to the soul of young Janet. Next - Woodchester Mansion
