The Castle Ghost

Rumour has it that the Castle is home to the ghost of Lady Sophie Scott who was also a resident of the Castle in Edwardian times. Lady Sophie was a keen sportswoman and reputedly an excellent shot. She and her husband, Sir Samuel Scott were renowned for their hospitality and hosted many a shooting party at Amhuinnsuidhe. Although she was very fond of children, she was unable to have any of her own. She died in 1937 at the age of 63. Her remains and those of her husband are buried in the cairn on the hill behind the Castle. If Lady Sophie does still visit her beloved Amhuinnsuidhe, she means only to keep a watch on her guests and make sure that their stay is as comfortable as possible.
