CortachY Castle, north of Kirriemuir in Angus, is the family seat of the OgilvY clan. To this day the castle is said to be haunted by the ghost of a drummer but only on certain ominoUS occasions. When ever the drumbeat is heard, so they say, a death in the Ogilvy family is imminent.
The phantollli drummer is said to be the ghost of a drummer at CortachY who incurred the wrath of his master. There is more than one version of how this came to be so, but one story tells that the drummer failed to give warning when the castle was about to be attacked. As fitting punishment the negligent drummer was dragged tO the top of the tower and flung to his death, along with his drum. The CortachY drummer has been heard not only at Cor tachy but also elsewhere as, so it is said, when members of the fam ily have been abroad. The sound of the phantom drumming strikes fear into the hearts of the Ogilvy family, for it can mean only one thing — tragedy is about to strike.
