Tulloch Castle was easy enough to find within the sleepy town of Dingwall, Scotland. There were plenty of signs leading up to the towns main tourist attraction, which overlooked everything below.
It was dinner time when we arrived, and Derek and I settled for bangers and mash in the castle bar.
After our meal, the hotel was begging to be explored; one of the attendants invited us to a ghost tour of the castle. Although my companion wasn’t too keen, I was interested in learning of the castle, and hadn’t heard about anything yet. Apparently the ghost lore draws many travellers from near and far, but we had come for the affordable castle stay. Our guide told us interesting tales of ghost sightings and the lives of the possible ghosts, starting with the Davidson clan to whom the castle and grounds once belonged. The tour of the castle was beautiful, despite being in the midst of a major renovation, and the story of the Davidson ghost was haunting.
Our newly renovated suite helped to keep the tales away at night, along with the cozy space heater and blankets.
Breakfast the next morning was not quite as delicious as previous breakfasts, but it certainly hit the spot.
Supper that night was a three course meal in the dining room, with Christmas music playing to brighten spirits. Stuffed and happy, we went to bed for another nights sleep, ready to check out and move on to our next Scottish adventure.
