1. Dalhousie Castle
Scotland’s Dalhousie Castle was built back in the 13th century, so it’s not surprising that it has a storied history. Many spirits apparently roam the property, but Sir Alexander Ramsay is a particularly popular sighting. It is said that in 1342 Sir Ramsay was starved to death by a William Douglas, and has spent the intervening years roaming the grounds seeking his revenge. You may also run in to the Grey Lady after sunset, the ghost of a Lady Catherine, who haunts the dungeon.
2. The Lizzie Borden Bed & Breakfast
Yes, you can actually stay at the Borden family home in Fall River, Massachusetts, in the USA. The infamous murder site is now a bed and breakfast that celebrates its most infamous former resident.
The house also functions as a museum dedicated to the suspected killer, her father, and stepmother, and strange things are known to occur. Doors open and close by themselves, and a mysterious floral aroma that some say is a sign of Lizzie’s ongoing presences occasionally, and unexplainably, perfumes the air.
3. Ross Castle
Located on the banks of a lake in Ireland’s County Meath, this castle from the 15th century is a bed and breakfast these days.
According to the locals, an evil English lord known as the Black Baron haunts the grounds, while his daughter stalks the halls.
4. The Russell Hotel
The Russell Hotel is located in Sydney, Australia, and offers guests the best of both worlds. It is located near some of the city’s most interesting modern-day attractions and a ghost or two from days gone by.
