Description

From the dark corries of the mighty Cuillin Hills to the dramatic caves and cliffs of its stunning coastline, the beautiful Isle of Skye is alive with tales of ghosts, fairies, clan battles, Celtic mythology and witchcraft, and they are all collected in this essential guide to everything supernatural and strange on the most spectacular of Scottish islands. Also taking in the Isle of Raasay, and Glenelg and Eilean Donan Castle on the Lochalsh mainland, here are comprehensive place-by-place entries on every historic site, ancient monument and hidden treasure. Find out about the Fairy Flag of Dunvegan Castle, the giant Angus MacAskill, and the skeleton of a water-horse at Ord. Marvel at sightings of sea-serpents and discover which loch hosted a Victorian monster-hunt. Learn about the folklore and feuds of the MacLeods and MacDonalds. Uncover the links between Ring of Bright Water author Gavin Maxwell and the supernatural. Revel in stories of phantom cars, ghostly clansmen, saintly miracles, gateways to Hell - and the dozens of fairy sites on the island. The Guide to Mysterious Skye and Lochalsh is the ninth in Geoff Holder's acclaimed series. As with the previous volumes, it is profusely illustrated and draws on both ancient and modern sources. Full access and location details are given for both driver and walker alike, making this the indispensable companion for anyone exploring the glorious and mysterious realms of Skye and Lochalsh.show more
