Lochleven Castle is forever asociated with taht of Mary Queen of Scots. After being defeated at the Battle of Carberry Hill in 1567, she was detained here for almost a year.
The castle sits on an island on the Lochleven Loch.
While at Lochleven, Mary was confined to bed for long periods of time, and it is believed that she miscarried twins. Mary's ghost is still said to haunt the castle in search of her offspring.
The castle was originally built in 1257 and has changed hands many times between the English and Scots.
The castle, still in good order is maintained by Historic Scotland
