Glamis Castle built in the 14th century, was the childhood home of of Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother and is protected as a category A building, but it’s reputation as a paranormal hot spot almost proceeds its status as a building of national importance.
Even before construction was attempted on Hunter’s Hill, a supernatural presence was clear. When builders came in to proceed with the construction of Glamis Castle each morning, they noticed the stones were broken and scattered. They’d rebuilt the walls, but each day it continued to happen.
Eventually a supernatural voice spoke out and warned them: ”build not on this enchanted spot, where man hath neither part nor lot, but build down in yonder bog, where it will neither shake nor shog!”
Ultimately, the warning was heeded and Glamis Castle was built on the flat terrain. Over the centuries of its existence, it has seen its fair share of paranormal activity and events that would leave the spirits there to haunt the grounds.
There are said to be many ghosts at Glamis Castle. One of the better known is that of Earl Beardie. Said to be a wicked man with a drinking and gambling problem, his soul is said to be residing in a secret room on the grounds, playing cards until doomsday.
Over the years, there were reports of children waking up in the middle of the night and seeing a shadowed figure standing over their beds.
Another famous ghost of Glamis Castle is the lady with no tongue. It’s unclear who she is or what happened to her, but she has been frequently seen standing at a barred window in the castle as well as pointing to her wounded face and her lack of a tongue.
