This is a selection of the myths and legends of Scotland, filled with local color, from Scottish journalist, folklorist, and writer Donald Alexander Mackenzie. These stories offer not only glimpses of ancient times and of old habits of thought and life but also of the country itself at different times of the year.
I don't know where the narrator is from but his accent is painfully contrived. The worst crime is his frequently repeated mispronunciation of Gaelic which, when referring to Scottish people/language should be pronounced Gallic not gail-ik. The stories are amazing but I can't listen to this numpty reading them.

This collection of tales from the Scots correlates with those from Wales and Ireland and seem less doom and gloom than those of the mainland. Magic, adventure, giants, and goddesses populate this interest collection.
Chekijian gave a fine audio performance once again.
