Accomodation

We have sole use of the castle from the evening of Friday 18th September to the morning of Sunday 20th September. Beds are available for £20 per person per night. Remember that this is a Youth Hostel - albeit a luxurious one - so rooms and bathroom facilities will be basic and shared.

We think it would be more in the spirit of the occasion if everyone was under one roof but if this doesn’t appeal to you there are some very nice hotels nearby.

If you would like to stay at the castle, please could we have your payment by 31st July 2009 making cheques payable to Christine Adams. You can't book direct with the castle since they've signed the whole place over to us... the fools, the fools.

The Art

Eros and Psyche

With 70+ paintings and 20 or so statues the art collection is quite impressive, especially for a youth hostel...

The Ghosts
The Piper
Heard on the rocky site before the castle was built.

The Lady in White
Speculation is this is the spirit of Duchess Blair who didn't live to see her castle completed.

The Battle of Carbisdale
An angry apparition carrying a sword in the Link Corridor. The castle is built near to the Hill of Lamentation, site of a 1650 massacre.

The Nursery / Schoolroom

Or 'The Spook Room', most ghost sightings in the castle happen here, apparently
