Reported Ghosts

Bannockburn House has played center-stage for many a ghostly tale by those who have visited, worked and lived within its confined walls.

A most common report is that of a young female which many witness as being a lowly servant girl, could she be the restless spirit often encountered on the balcony where a saddening suicide once took place. You must be wary here as you open yourself up to her sorrow.

Disembodied footsteps are heard walking down the seemingly empty passageways of this great house. Previous ghost Hunts at Bannockburn House have been known to terrify its intrepid ghost hunters, causing their faces lose all colour, as they have experienced the shocking feeling of being grabbed by unseen hands, and to then feel completely uneasy on their feet. Doors have been heard opening and closing under ghostly force and “dancing lights” witnessed in the darkness.

This house of such history has numerous haunting tales including that a murdered king, whose restless spirit roams the former abandoned rooms and grimly lit halls

Venue History

Sir Robert Drummond was granted the Barony of Bannockburn in 1567 by Mary Queen of Scots and his grandson-built Drummonds’ Hall. The lands of Bannockburn then came into the hands of the Rollo family in 1636, with King Charles II granting the Baronetcy to Sir Andrew Rollo in 1651. Sir Andrew Rollo had supported Charles I during the English Civil war.

Sir Hugh Paterson, I purchased the lands in 1672, and the house was completed around 1675. Described by a specialist as a “rare survivor” of its time and it has many interesting architectural features, including the “Laigh Hall” and the “Blue Room” ceilings reputed to be the work of Hulbert and Dunsterfield; two highly skilled craftsmen who Charles II had commissioned to produce ornate ceilings within Holyrood Palace.

Sir Hugh Patterson, the second baronet’s most notable guest was Charles Edward Stuart, Bonnie Prince Charlie in January 1746. The Prince had briefly visited and dined with Sir Hugh in September 1745 prior to his campaign march south ending at Derby. Bannockburn House was used by the Prince as his headquarters during the siege of Stirling and the battle of Falkirk.

Charles Edward Stuart met the Baronet’s niece, Clementina Walkinshaw during his stay. She would later become his lover and mother of his child. When the house passed to the 2nd Baronet’s daughter, Mary, in 1787, she sold the property to William Ramsey of Barnton and Sauchie. The house stayed in the Ramsey Family until Sir James Ramsey Gibson-Maitland sold it to Alexander Wilson in 1883. Alexander was a member of the famous Bannockburn weaving family of Wilson. Alexander made many additions and changes to the house, including a new porch entrance and extension to the library and office. Above the main doorway, a recess to accommodate a coat of arms that is now empty.

In 1910 Bannockburn House was sold to the Sheriff Substitute of Stirling at James Mitchell. In 1962 Mitchell’s daughter sold the house after living in it for 32 years. She sold the house to the multi-property-owning millionaire A.E Pickard. Peter Drake formerly owned the house. It was placed on the market for sale in February 2016. A local charitable Community Trust was formed to try and purchase the house for the community and the people of Scotland. They aim to safeguard the property for future generations. It was announced in April 2017 that the Trust had secured an exclusive right to buy the property and were actively fundraising to raise the required funds. This was achieved in November 2017 with a mixture of public money and grants.

The house has many surviving features from the 17th century including molded timber wall panels, elaborate plasterwork, a decorative timber staircase, and fire surrounds with mosaic tiles.
