    This book has been a long time taken in reading I bought it in the town of Pitlochry for 2 pounds in a quaint secondhand shop and started reading it there and then, in the Scottish highlands The stories of Scotland were read during our stay there and have been read slowly and pleasantly over time They were told out loud and enjoyed orally, as they were meant to be Now, almost one year to the day, it has run out Thus, the 5 stars come from the heart, because the tales told in this volume are This book has been a long time taken in reading I bought it in the town of Pitlochry for 2 pounds in a quaint secondhand shop and started reading it there and then, in the Scottish highlands The stories of Scotland were read during our stay there and have been read slowly and pleasantly over time They were told out loud and enjoyed orally, as they were meant to be Now, almost one year to the day, it has run out Thus, the 5 stars come from the heart, because the tales told in this volume are not the greatest literature you ll read, nor the most hooking thrillers and adventures They are simple stories of simple peoples who roamed the countryside of Scotland and who have been, for the most part, forgotten.Every time I read them, they not only carry on their natural evocative nature for that was their nature , but they also take me back to the hills and forests of Scotland once again My second home

    An interesting mixed bag of stories, some about travellers in Scotland and the rest of the UK and some told by them The ghostly stories were my favorites Not a collection of solely happy stories though, some truly horrific tales of abuse the travellers suffered, for being travellers Recommended An enlightening and interesting read
