What was this ghost movie?

I saw this movie on TV in the mid-1970s. I thought that it was The Canterville Ghost, but the payoff is different.

A Scotsman is condemned to haunt his castle because of an act of cowardice before a rival clan. But unlike the classic movie, he can only be released if he can get a member of the rival clan to apologize (or something like that).

An American family buys the castle, intending to use the ghost as a tourist attraction. This makes the ghost angry and hurt. He stops doing his midnight appearances. But when one of the guests, a pompous middle-aged man, boasts that he is the last member of the rival clan, the ghost pulls out all the stops and scares the crap out of the guy.

How about The Ghost Goes West (1935)?
