Scottish Folk and Fairy Tales from Burns to Buchan




A nation rich with superstitions and storytellers, Scotland has a grand tradition of folk and fairy tales, and this collection provides an insight into the curses, blessings and creatures - both widely recognisable and peculiarly Scottish - that populate it. 

Mystery and excitement abound in this lively collection of fairy tales, folklore and legends, which celebrate Scotland's enormously rich oral tradition and offers a carefully chosen combination of old favourites such as Tam Lin, Thomas Rymer and Adam Bell, as well as more modern stories by master story-tellers like Andrew Lang, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and John Buchan.
