Summary

Strange Tales of Scotland all deal with a particular aspect of Scottish mysteries.

You'll learn of the ghost that appeared at the wedding of King Alexander II, and of monsters such as the Shellycoat and Water-horse that were thought to inhabit Scotland’s lochs. 

Another part deals exclusively with Loch Ness, and the strange happenings at that mysterious body of water. Later, we have a look at the mysterious deaths at the Flannan Islands Lighthouse, and at the strange creatures that were once believed to infest the hills and glens of Scotland, including the terrifying brollachan and the slaugh.

Tales of Mermaids and Fin-men are unearthed, as are terrible stories of Scotland’s caves, including human sacrifice at Moray’s Sculptor’s Cave. The legends of Roslin Chapel and its nearby castle are examined, with the possible connection to the Knights Templar.

Finally, we have a look at the legend of the phantom armies of Scotland; soldiers who refuse to fade away even centuries after their wars have been fought, and their causes faded in history.

Welcome to the Strange Tales of Scotland.

HISTORY OF SCOTLAND

A collection of the myths, folk tales, and legends of Scotland. Some, one is more familiar with Loch Ness, the Roslin Chapel.to name a few. To hear of others was interesting, the haunting stories of the caves. The narration by Nigel Peever was superb. Given ARC audio for my voluntary review and my honest opinion

Weird plus mysterious equals five stars

When you have a book that you know is a good one the only thing that could ruin it is the narrator. Thank God that wasn’t the case here George Ellington did a wonderful job. I thought his voice was inviting, clear and engaging to listen to. That is why I gave them all five stars across-the-board. Do you stories of weird mysterious strange obscure out the box and stories that make you say OMG this is the book it doesn’t get any better unless you’re reading one of his other books about England, Wales or the strange see. He has the perfect name for the perfect genre of books. I loved it and if you like the weird and mysterious you’ll love it too!

Love the narrator!

If you're into ghosts, monsters, blood and guts, or Scotland in general, then this is a must read. It profiles some of the most haunted places in Scotland, as well as providing a good bit of cryptozoology. And the narrator's sexy Edinburgh accent really makes it all come alive! I cannot recommend this one enough!
