In the global world of the Internet, where anything is possible, where scientists never cease to astonish yet seem to provide more questions than answers, Roddy Martine looks beyond the everyday and the normal, searching for answers in the mysteries of Haunted Scotland. Collected over many years, the author retells stories that have evolved through the mists of time, while others he recounts are based on interviews with those who claim to have experienced real-life paranormal encounters. Divided into geographical chapters covering the Borders, the South West, Strathclyde, the South East, the Central Belt and Trossachs, the Eastern Highlands, the Kingdom of Fife, the Western Highlands, the North, the Hebrides, Orkney and Shetland, Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow, and Inverness, Roddy Martine examines stories of paranormal activity and the legends and folklore of haunted Scotland.
Roddy Martine was born in Sarawak and educated in Scotland. A former editor of Scottish Field magazine, he now focuses on writing books of Scottish interest from clan tartans to the supernatural, including the classic The Swinging Sporran and Secrets of Rosslyn. He is contributing editor to Scotland magazine and editor of The Keeper, and he regularly writes for a wide range of magazines and newspapers. He lives in Edinburgh.
