This book consists of various ghost stories from in and around St. Andrews. A great read accompanied with a wee dram, or two!
The author quotes “There are ghosts and phantoms round us,
On the mountains, on the sea;
Some are cold and some are clammy,
Some are hot as hot can be.
They can creep, and crawl, and hover,
And can howl, and shriek, and wail,
But those who want to hear of them
Must read this little tale.”
