Tour Scotland video of Pipe Bands playing the bagpipes and drums, and a solo piper, on the grounds of Glamis Castle, Angus, Scotland. This Scottish castle has been the Royal residence of the Lyon family since 1372 and is the legendary setting of Macbeth by William Shakespeare. It was the childhood home of Queen Elizabeth, The Queen Mother, and the birthplace of Princess Margaret. The Castle is situated 12 miles North of Dundee, 81 miles North of Edinburgh, 6 miles from Forfar and 93 miles from Glasgow. In 1532 Lady Janet Douglas Lady was accused of witchcraft by friends of King James V and imprisoned. After several months in a dark dungeon, she was burned alive at the stake outside Edinburgh Castle. Even her young son was condemned to death and imprisoned only to be released after the king had died. Lady Janet Douglas's ghost is known as The White Lady she has haunted Glamis Castle for hundreds of years. The apparition has been seen relatively recently in the chapel by a number of witnesses. She is also said to appear above the Clock Tower.
