Marion was the daughter of the first Lord Airlie and lover of Cardinal Beaton, who built her Melgund Castle near Brechin. She was an able and literate woman who managed her own affairs, and left £3,000 in her will. The reason she is included here is that an entirely unfounded but persistent legend names her as Dundee’s most famous ghost. She is said to be the White Lady of Claypotts Castle, and is to be seen waving her handkerchief from the window towards St Andrews where Cardinal Beaton lived. Especially on 29 May 1546, the date he was burnt to death. Go and look!
