New, unread. 27 stories of life in Scottish castles in past centuries, handed down by the families which inhabited them, many told by the clans' chiefs or chieftains. These tales deal with the lives led in the castles and the traditions of this battling society. The warlike traditions blend with strong supernatural beliefs - in fairies, ghostly armies, events which warn of death; each castle has a long and, at times, unexplainable history. Each story, some of supernatural events, some of the clan's battles, is complete with an illustration of the castle, and a thorough history of the castle, it's battles, and the families that protected it. A map at the beginning of the book shows where each castle is located. Each tale is accompanied by a specially commissioned line drawing of the castle from which the tale comes.; 180 pages
