Scotland’s history encompasses many strange, grisly and macabre stories. In Strange and Gruesome Tales of Scotland, author Alan Robson reveals an alternative history of Scotland and explores the areas where these mysterious and often bloodthirsty events took place.

The tales include Burke and Hare’s bodies for sale and the crying girl of Princes Street in Edinburgh, the Strumphand of Ayr, the dragon of Arbroath, the blue men of Minch, Blackbeard‘s curse on Loch Ness, the galleon of lost souls, King Duncan’s ghost, Loch Lomond and the lost legion as well as many more stories.

These tales, and the stories surrounding the locations in Scotland, are accompanied by illustrations of places featured in the text in this hugely entertaining book.
