About 5 miles up the coast from St Donat's Castle, you will find Southerndown.  Directions to follow...

Dunraven Castle
 
This was the home of the "wrecker lord", Thomas Vaughan, who was ruthless in luring ships onto the rocks along the coastline.  The wrecks and bodies would then be stripped of all valuables.  His ghost appears in our next entry underneath, but the castle is said to be haunted by a little old lady in a blue dress.  She leaves behind the smell of mimosa.
 
Southerndown Beach
 
This area is said to be the haunt of Thomas Vaughan.  He now roams the area above the beach and rocks where he inadvertently lured his own son to his death when returning from a voyage abroad.  He can be seen "in a long flowing cloak, moaning and crying" at the loss of his son by his own greed.
