The oldest established hotel in Scotland, Salutation Hotel has played host to a number of notable names including Bonnie Prince Charlie in 1745 and David Bowie in the 1960s.
You'll love the warm welcome you’ll receive from the Salutation, and for added fun you might even spot the ghost of Bonnie Prince Charlie who has been widely reported by visitors.
One former guest claims to have been woken up by Prince’s spirit pacing at the end of their bed. Whether or not the spooky tales are true, the Salutation Hotel in Perth is one of the oldest hotels in Scotland, with hundreds of years of history just waiting to be uncovered.
The Drovers Inn, Loch Lomond
Located close to Loch Lomond, The Drovers Inn is believed to be one of the most haunted hotels in Britain.
Filled with fascinating history, great food and surrounded by beautiful scenery, there's the added thrill of coming across the ghost of a young clansman, who died at the hands of a rival clan.
Cathedral House Hotel, Glasgow
Originally built in 1877, with the purpose of offering accommodation for recently released inmates from the neighbouring Duke Street Prison, meaning there's a real chance you might discover something spooky.
Depending on what room you book, you might land yourselves with an eerie view of Glasgow’s Necropolis, the Victorian graveyard which lies across from the hotel.
Airth Castle Hotel, Airth
Dating back to the 14th Century and once owned by Robert the Bruce, Airth Castle Hotel is perfectly located in the secluded countryside and homes 125 rooms, a spa, a delicious restaurant and...a ghostly dog that is likely to brush by your ankles in the night.
Airth’s paranormal pup is also accompanied by the spectres of two children who are known for playing specifically behind the doors of rooms 3, 4, 9 and 23.
Tulloch Castle Hotel, Dingwall
Tulloch Castle has been around since the 12th Century and originally played host to lairds and clan chiefs, the hotel is now fitted with 22 en-suite bedrooms and has kept some of its classic period features, such as the Great Hall.
Guests at the Tulloch Castle Hotel have reported being woken by tapping at the windows...three floors up, rattling door handles and the common sighting of the Green Lady, who has even been captured on film by multiple paranormal investigation teams.
Borthwick Castle, Edinburgh
Borthwick Castle offers twelve unique rooms fitted with grand en-suits, which have recently been refurbished since being built in the 13th century. Once a frequent stopover location from Mary Queen of Scots - guests and staff at the Borthwick have reported sightings of the late Mary’s ghost creeping through the hallways.
The hotel has also become famous for its ‘Red Room’, after a number of visitors reporting seeing the ghosts of a servant girl and a chancellor who was killed in the grounds.
Dornoch Castle, Sutherland
Dornoch sits facing the 12th century Dornoch Cathedral, and offers the perfect scenery for a luxury staycation.
The hotel has become popular with whisky fans for its incredible collection of spirits, including that of the ghost of Andrew McCornish, who was reportedly executed on the castle grounds for stealing sheep.
Fortunately for visitors Andrew’s ghost is known to be harmless, as he quietly roams around the castle.
