Bedlay Castle stands close to Glasgow, at Chryston. It was first built in the twelfth century as a palace for the bishops of Glasgow. The castle appears to have avoided notoriety until one day, around the year 1350, one Bishop Cameron had the misfortune to be found dead, floating face down in the waters of a nearby loch.
The bishop, it would seem, had not gone willingly into the afterlife, for after his death he continued to appear in the castle in ghostly form. The appearances of Bishop Cameron and the sounds that he made caused considerable torment to the inhabitants of the castle in the centuries to come, so much so that an exorcism was reported to have been attempted towards the end of the nineteenth century. It was unsuccessful.
In the nineteen seventies Castle Bedlay became home to an antique dealer and his family, and they claimed both to have seen the large figure of the bishop appearing before them and to have heard him pacing restlessly about in neighbouring rooms.
