Scottish history is rich with folklore. To hear a story about ghosts, phantoms, fairies, poltergeists or hauntings one needs merely to ask an old Scotsman. Chances are he would tell a story that was passed down to him from his ancestors and could tell that story with such conviction that even the skeptic might be convinced of its validity.
All of Scotland is full of stories of the paranormal, and Lily Seafield brought over 150 of those tales together in her book, which contains some of Scotland’s most colorful and convincing ghost stories. Seafield brought those stories to life but left it up to the reader to decide whether the each story is fact or fancy. She calls her book a “starting point for ghost-hunters.” Is a particular story a myth or a real occurrence? It’s up to the reader to give a verdict, but if you asked that old Scotsman, there would be no question in his mind.
