Meet Tom Robertson, your septuagenarian guide to an alternative and unknown Scotland - a Scotland inhabited by African ghosts, monstrous mountain-roaming creatures and castle-dwelling vampires. On the surface, Tom appears to be an average pensioner quietly winding down his life. Appearances, however, can be deceptive. Tom has an amazing story to tell. In fact, Tom has several amazing stories to tell, because he has devoted much of his existence to a strange and unusual obsession that brought fame and controversy, ill health and adventure - ghosthunting. Now Tom is ready to recount the most fantastic of his personal experiences, in his own inimitable style, in a controversial, scary and funny journey stretching across seven decades in this memoir with a difference. An amazing man who has led an out-of-this-world life will captivate and take readers off the beaten track on a trip through Scotland one may never have imagined possible.
For nearly a decade, Murray Scougall has specialised in writing human-interest stories for The Sunday Post. He's also had his hand crushed by Sly Stallone, interviewed a high priest witch, traded verbal jabs with Joe Frazier, stared out Morgan Freeman and been called at home by Alice Cooper from a Russian airport. He reunited, six decades on, three ex-POWs who plotted the real Great Escape during WW2 and was one of the first reporters to attend the Glasgow Airport terrorist attack. Murray lives in Lanarkshire with his fiancee, and when he's not writing he indulges his obsessions of football, movies and music.
