Author: Lily Seafield
This bestselling book of Scottish ghosts, superstitions and folklore consists of stories drawn from all over Scotland that range in time from the seventeenth century to the recent past.
In this lively, entertaining and well-researched anthology, you will be introduced to some of Scotland’s best ghosts. Drummers, bagpipe players, phantom lights, poltergeists, hillsides, islands, battle sites, ruined churches, hotels, houses and castles – it seems there are few areas in Scotland that have escaped an odd atmosphere or a haunted appearance.
In this abundant collection of over 140 stories of Scotland’s rich and varied folklore, there are accounts of green ladies, grey ladies, spectral kings and queens, mischievous ghosts, whispering ghosts, calm poltergeists, wailing washerwomen and phantom dogs among many other assorted ghosts and stories. Scotland’s vibrant storytelling tradition is captured here, with tales of sightings, noises, furniture in disarray, and spectres past and present.
The author reports sightings that have convinced the most sceptical of unbelievers. Whether these are the products of over-fertile imaginations, the desire to keep the memory of a colourful character alive, the simple wish to spin a good yarn by the fireside, or whether they are actual sightings is for you to ponder upon.
