The castle is associated with a ghostly bridal party. Baron Featherstonehaugh
had arranged for his daughter to marry a relative of his choice, even though
the daughter was in love with someone else. The wedding party left for the "traditional
hunt" after the wedding, leaving the baron behind to make arrangements
for the banquet. When the party failed to return by midnight, the baron began
to fear the worst. Sitting alone at the table, he heard horses crossing the
drawbridge. The door opened and the party entered. But, they made no sound and
passed through furniture.
The wedding party had been ambushed and killed. On the anniversary of the wedding,
the party can still be seen heading towards the castle.
