Dark Encounters

A collection of stories by

“A collection of outstanding ghost stories” from a Scottish historian who “tell[s] a beautifully chilling story” (Undiscovered Scotland).
Dark Encounters is a collection of classic and elegantly unsettling ghost stories first published in 1963. A spine-tingling collection, these tales are set in the brooding landscape of Scotland with an air of historic authenticity—often referring to real events, objects, and people. From a demonic text that leaves its readers strangled to the murderous specter of a feudal baron, this is a crucial addition to the long and distinguished canon of Scottish ghost stories.
For those who seek out the unnerving, the unknown, and the unexplainable,
Dark Encounters is guaranteed to raise the hair on the back of your neck.
��A really atmospheric book. Best set aside for a cold, dark winter’s evening in front of a roaring log fire!” —

“Like most really good ghost stories, there is an element of fact or historical myth surrounding it to make the tale that much more authentic. The author also has the knack of keeping the reader hanging on his words to try and find out what was the cause of the tale.” —
