In Scotland, "there is not a stream or a rock that does not have its story," proclaims writer, broadcaster, and storyteller Stuart McHardy. Here he presents 28 myths, legends, and histories exploring ancient Scotland, castles and royalty, clans and culture, and the Scottish landscape and wildlife. Captivating, often gruesome, and filled with heroic warriors, bold heroines, deceitful aristocrats, and supernatural creatures, these tales form a journey into Scotland's cultural heritage and an oral tradition that stretches back more than 10,000 years.
