Very interesting. Also not a good choice for bedtime readings, unless it was the part about ghostly pets. That wasn't so bad late at night.

Recommends it for: People who like to read about hauntings/ghost stories
I rather enjoyed this book, not hard to read but the downside to it is the author seems to let things get away from him, everyone in the book seemed to be a friend of his of some kind, so it didn't really feel like he put too much effort into it.
Regardless the start of the chapters is really interesting, quotes from authors and not all of them gothic writers either, JM Barrie is one, as is Edgar Allen Poe, who are at two different aread of the writing world spectrum.

A decent case by case showing of paranormal activity in Scotland. You get some history and some supernatural. It could use a lot more research backing. Cite sources or give references for further reading, mabye? I tried looking up the story about the Cynocephali and haven't found anything yet. A good quick read that I bought at Dumbarton Castle, Eastern Scotland.

I bought this book while visiting Scotland. I collect books like this from places I visit and this book was an intelligent read on "ghost stories", loved it!
