6. Ruthin Castle, Ruthin, Denbighshire, Wales
Any castle that sports a Drowning Pit, a Whipping Pit and dungeons is asking to be haunted, frankly. Add the execution of a jealous wife who had murdered her husband's lover with an axe and the chances of the place not teeming with ghostly goings on is practically nil. At Ruthin a brilliant red fort with over 400 years of grim history behind it the Grey Lady can be seen roaming the battlements and chapel (sans axe, regrettably) whilst other areas of the castle are prone to mysterious noises, footsteps, inexplicable changes in temperature and the appearance of a spectral soldier

7. Maes-y-Neuadd Talsarnau, Gwynedd, Wales
Not all apparitions aim to frighten, of course this 14th-century granite manor house is home to a ghost who is really quite friendly. Maes-y-Neuadd's Morfa Suite is the scene of many sightings of a woman thought to have been a children's nursemaid. Rather than being terrified, guests claim they became very calm in her presence and found themselves drifting pleasantly off to sleep. If you don't receive a visitation, you can at least console yourself the next morning with the hotel's eye-easing views of Snowdonia

8. Tulloch Castle Hotel, Dingwall, Ross and Cromarty, Scotland
Not one for the faint hearted, this one guest reported waking up to feel two ghostly girls sitting on his chest in an apparent attempt to suffocate him. Others have seen figures at the foot of their bed and experienced nights disturbed by rattling door handles and other noises. There's also a Green Lady who mopes about, having died falling down a spiral staircase. If this were not enough, the former castle, dating from the 12th century, also contains secret passages, a secret door and a secret tunnel to Dingwall Castle. Hard core paranormalists should ask for room eight

9. Comlongon Castle, Clarencefield, Dumfries, Scotland
It was reported on September 25 1570 that the Lady Marion Carruthers "did willfully take her own life by leaping from the lookout tower of Comlongon Castle and did break her head and bones". It's no surprise to learn that grass refused to grow on the spot where the cruelly imprisoned wife struck the ground or that her sorrowful spirit still stalks this luxurious mediaeval castle on the Scottish borders. The fact that her ghost is green, smells of apples and moves jewellery around rooms is perhaps a little bit special. Marion hunters should request the Carruthers suite, her centre of operations

10. Dobbins Inn, Carrickfergus, County Antrim, Northern Ireland
Built in the 13th century and one of Northern Ireland's oldest pubs, the Dobbins has served as a gaol, an armoury, a post office and a safe haven for Catholics (the priest hole can still be seen in the reception area). However, none of this will be any consolation to Maude and Buttoncap. The former, the wife of Hugh Dobbins, fell for the latter, a soldier garrisoned in the castle across the road, and they would meet up via a secret tunnel. When Dobbins discovered them, he killed them both with a sword, though it's only Maude who comes back to caress sleeping guests with her hand
