Publisher's Summary

Scotland evokes strong images in the minds of most people - castles and kilts, heather and the Highlands. It’s a place many are from and many would like to see. It’s an ancient land, filled with history and with a promising future.

Not everything in Scotland is as it appears, however. Some Scots say this is a land haunted by spirits, a place of strange disappearances and unexplained phenomena. There is no shortage when it comes to the strange stories Scotland has to offer, and the legends and lore have compelled many to dig a little deeper and even explore this wonderful land for themselves.

This book offers a sampling of strange, unexplained, and just plain odd stories from Scotland that have fascinated people in and around the region for centuries.

Misleading pronunciation

I had two problems with this audiobook. First, any audio that aspires to educate listeners should pronounce names and places correctly. Loch is NOT pronounced "loke" and Edinburgh is NOT said with a "g" sound at the end, but almost as "Edinburah." The Isle of Lewis is pronounced "lose." Secondly, the authors elaborate on gruesome details of several with only a nod to alternate explanations.

Don't waste your time

I feel that for me this was both a waste of my time as well as a waste of what ever I paid for it. I would not recommend it.

The title makes you think it’s gonna be something different

It was ok, just ok. Like it wasn’t bad, it definitely wasn’t good, and I guess the story is kind of what the title says but it mentions magic and there isn’t really a lot of magic it’s more of weird things.
