Drumming was heard on this hill, the beating so clear that witnesses were able to identify the country to which the marching tune belonged.
Fealaar - Hut hidden away in a wooded area
Two hunters were said to have been attacked by a vampire while spending the night in the bothy. This story is very similar to the vampire tale that happened at Blair Atholl, Lowlands, and is likely to be derived from it.
Fraserburgh - 12 High Street
Unknown Ghost Type
A man staying at his parents' flat was awoken to see an elderly woman materialise by his bed. The entity appeared to be trying to communicate with him, though the ghost disappeared after he shouted at it. The following day he was told that the people in the flat upstairs were playing with a Ouija board and had contacted an old lady who had once lived in the house.
Fraserburgh - Kinnaird Head Castle
Weather Dependent: Prior to a storm
Isobel killed herself after she discovered her father had drowned her secret lover in a cave along the coastline, having chained him to a rock while a storm raised the water level over its norm. A sighting of her shade now denotes incoming bad weather.
Fraserburgh - Off coast
The fishing boat Glengrant reported coming under attack by a sixty metre long beast, with a horse's head, though the teeth were long and pointed. The monster only stopped ramming the boat after being shot by a crewman.
Fyvie - Fyvie Castle
Prior to a death in the family
One of several ghosts here, the ghost of Andrew Lammie blows a single long note on his instrument as a death approaches the family. Another spirit, a green lady, performs the same warning facility, though she is seen and not heard as she drifts down the corridors to the 'Murder Room'.
Gamrie - Old churchyard
Though the churchyard has not seen any burials since 1935, stories are still told of how lights would dance around the headstones on the eve of a funeral.
Glen Aven - Mountains
This demonic creature, whose head is twice the size of its body, is so evil that anything which crosses an area where it has walked is doomed to die soon after.
Huntly - Frendraught House
This woman is thought to have started a fire that killed several people on the site in the early seventeenth century - her ghost wearing a golden dress occasionally appears, but not to those who share her family name. The screams and footsteps of those people she (allegedly) murdered have also been heard, and a pale horror stricken face peers from a window.
Inverbervie - Hallgreen Castle
Two teenage serving girls still frequent the building, though it has been a good many years since their deaths. A strange man in a long cloak is also reported to haunt the castle.

Unknown Ghost Type
Two people walking down this lane on a misty night watched a hooded figure drift through a seven foot high metal wire fence.
Inverurie - Pittodrie House hotel
31 October (reoccurring)
The cries for help heard only on Halloween emerge from the staircase. They may belong to a maid once caught in a fire which engulfed the building - she fell to her death trying to escape. A ghostly carriage pulled by a single horse haunts the driveway, while another spook has been reported in the library.
Inverurie - Thainstone House Hotel
A green female form has been observed in the house since the young daughter of a former owner died in a riding accident.
Kemnay - Burnett Arms Hotel
Wearing a pink wedding dress, the ghost of a former owner named Maggie who died in 1934 is thought to haunt this hotel. A local legend said that two coffins were buried under the hotel, one containing Maggie's body and the other filled with her money, though an excavation under the building in 2008 found nothing.
Kennethmont - Leith Hall
The ghostly Victorian was just one of several spirits thought to haunt this building; the sound of a small dog was often heard as it ran across the floor, and a man with his head dressed in blood soaked bandages (later named as John Leith, shot by an associate during a duel) was seen by one owner.
Kirton of Durris - Durriss House
This woman was killed when the original building was burnt to the ground, though her shade took a liking to the reconstruction work and returned to stay.

A local wizard, Alexander Skene, once froze the waters of the loch so he could take a short cut home.
Loch Skene - General area
A local villain, Alex was drowned by Old Nick as he tried to cross the waters of the loch in his horse-drawn carriage. The same coach still travels the surrounding countryside, driven by its dead master. The same area is also 'haunted' by a large hairy monster, apparently once photographed from a distance.
Lumphanan - Craigievar Castle, Blue Room
This unnamed member of the Gordon family is believed to have fallen to his death from a bedroom window, and now haunts that room. A much more selective shade is a fiddler who drowned on the site - he only appears to people named Forbes.
Mintlaw - Woods near The Beaches
Local man James Maskame watched a large black cat-like creature leave the woods before running across nearby farmland. This is just one of several in the area, where local media have dubbed the cat 'The Beast of Buchan'.

Only appearing in front of children, this pale shade walks the hotel.
Peterhead - River Ugie by Inverugie Castle
Having seen a big black horse grazing on the banks of the Ugie, a local man was warned that it was a kelpie. He found a 'waith-horse' bridle and managed to control the creature, setting it free once it had carried enough stones to make a bridge over the river.
Pitcaple - Pitcaple Castle
Prior to death in the owner's family
To find a robin perched within the castle walls is considered the ultimate in misfortune, as it denotes a family death.
