More About This Title Paranormal Perthshire


Standing on a lonely Perthshire road is the only historic monument to a named witch in the whole of Britain. But did "Maggie Wall" actually exist? This book reveals the controversial truth for the first time. (Even more surprising results come from a quest to uncover the reality of Perthshire's other famous witch, Kate McNiven.) Other strange tales in this book include direct evidence for the big cats roaming the county, a catalog of the area's UFO sightings, the story of the Fairy Rock that halted a housing development, and the tale of the notorious Victorian scandal involving Ballechin House, allegedly "the most haunted house in Scotland." With contemporary eye-witness accounts of ghosts, psychic episodes, and encounters with supernatural beings, as well as more than 50 photographs, this book will delight all lovers of the mysterious and the paranormal.
