Newbattle Abbey

A "Grey Lady" is said to walk the grounds; it is said she is Margaret, daughter of John Heron of Gilmerton, and that she had an affair with a monk in the 14th century. Although they were discovered and Margaret's daughter forbade them from seeing each other, they arranged to meet one last time. Unfortunately, Margaret's father followed them and set fire to their rendezvous point and the two lovers burned to death. In addition to the Grey Lady, spectral monks have also been seen in the grounds too.
