Scary Ghost Stories of the Scottish Borders Stories of Scotland

    • Historia

In this episode, Annie and Jenny tell some truly terrifying tales from the Borders of Scotland. We’ve all heard something go bump in the night that’s made the hairs on our neck stand on end, and while sometimes it’s as innocent as an open window in the attic, other times it can be as dastardly as the devil. These spooky tales from the archives explore the rolling moors of the Borders, haunted towers, and decrepit mansions. So come and join us as we peek behind the veil, and then quickly run away, too scared to look back.
