The story of Baldoon Castle.

In Bladnoch, Scotland, very early in the morning, in and on the grounds of Baldoon Castle, a woman who died on the grounds can still be seen walking and grieving in her nightgown, splashed in the blood of her new groom.

The woman’s name is Janet and the man she had just wed was David Dunbar. However, Dunbar was not at all the man that she wanted to marry, being that she was in love with Archibald, third Lord Rutherford. Her parents had forbade her to be with him in any way due to the fact that he had no money. Instead, they decided that Dunbar was the perfect man for her to marry.

On their wedding night, yelling and screams could be heard by the family from within the newlyweds’ room. It seemed that the couple was not getting along very well. When the family became very worried, especially when only whimpering could be heard from inside the room, they opened the door. Inside they saw that Dunbar was on the floor with blood pouring out of his body. Janet was holding a knife and sat huddled in a corner. While the cause of the death seemed obvious, local tradition states that it was actually the Devil that stabbed Dunbar and that he then turned Janet insane.

Dunbar amazingly survived the night however he would never speak of what happened in the bridal chamber that evening. Janet died shortly after on September 12, 1669.
