Lo­cal his­to­ri­ans and folk­lorists of­ten record lo­cal ma­te­rial that the big­ger and more aca­demic sur­veys over­look. In this slim, pri­vately pub­lished vol­ume, Steel Collins, a Glas­gow-based au­thor, dives be­low the stormy po­lit­i­cal his­tory of this re­gion to ex­ca­vate lo­cal sto­ries of ghosts, poltergeists and witches, clos­ing with an ac­count of the shady early 19th cen­tury trade of sup­ply­ing corpses to the train­ing hos­pi­tals for dis­sec­tion; all en­gag­ingly told.
