The Goblin Ha'
The Goblin Ha'
A subterranean vaulted chamber in Yester Castle, dating from the 13 Century. Underneath the 14th century masonry is the famous subterranean Goblin Hall, supposedly created by mysterious forces. In reality it is but the basement vault of the original rectangular keep first raised by the alleged wizard Hugh de Gifford some time before 1267. This Gifford keep was illegally occupied by the English in 1308 and was consequently stormed by the Scots, then cast down to ground level in accord with King Robert the Bruce's (1306-1329) policy of making castles unserviceable to the English.
