Voted No.1 Haunted B&B By TripAdvisor (Public Survey Held in October 2013) Set on the peaceful shores of Loch Creran on the West Coast of Scotland, Barcaldine Castle is the only ancient castle in Argyll, making it truly a unique place to stay.

By 1837 it held 37 inmates, and following the prisons act of 1865, a four-storey wing was built, mirroring the style of London’s Pentonville Prison. Ruthin became HM Prison Ruthin in 1878, and housed prisoners from counties Denbighshire, Flitnshire, and Merioneshire. There has been just one recorded execution at Ruthin. In 1903, William Hughes was hanged for the murder of his wife....read more
