Scotland is well known for being one of the most haunted countries in the world, but alongside the famous locations are many less well-known places, with equally eerie and horrific stories.
What really lurks in the underground streets of Edinburgh and why is a section of an ancient graveyard in the City kept locked? What really happened during the witch trials at the start of the 18th Century? Who is in the phantom coach that thunders towards St Andrews on stormy nights and why do students at the town’s world famous university avoid walking on an area of cobbled road?
Although some of the better-known stories are touched on, this book focuses on the less well-known locations and rather than just re-tell the stories, the author has personally visited each site. Some are locations known to be haunted, in which case the book provides some history and details of the reported hauntings, along with the author’s own experience and any unexplained photographs. Other locations are not known to be haunted but, when visiting, something unusual showed up in the photographs. For these locations, the book provides some history, the author’s own experience and the unusual photographs.
