Haunted Castles

I’ve always been fascinated by Haunted Castles, or even just castles in general. They are beautiful, mysterious and seem to have a foreboding aura about them.

Europe is full of haunted castles. From Edinburgh Castle in Scotland to Leap Castle in Ireland, Europe is a place that would be fantastic to visit and take some haunted castle tours. Europe isn’t the only place that has haunted castles, however. Jamaica has it’s own haunted castle, Rose Hall in Montego Bay, and Canada has haunted castles as well, including Casa Loma, in Toronto.
