This book helps you explore the myths and legends surrounding one of Scotland's most famous locations. The home of the fabled Loch Ness monster, or Nessie as she is affectionately known, is a favourite tourist spot. Every year thousands flock to her shores hoping for a glimpse of the mysterious creature. But hers is not the only story Loch Ness has to offer. It is home to a wide range of tales that reflect the dramatic history of the Scottish Highlands. Here memories are long and some stories have survived for well over a thousand years. From Irish priests and Pictish kings to tales of clan feuds and great love, faithful warriors and real heroes, Tales of Loch Ness will bring the legends of Scotland to life.
Stuart McHardy - writer, musician, storyteller, folklorist, historian, poet, past president of the Pictish Arts Society and ex-Director Scots Language Resource Centre - has lectured on many aspects of Scottish history and culture both in Scotland and abroad, and has made regular appearances on television and radio.
