Caught by the Ghoulies; Tales of the Supernatural from Stonehouse
The following stories have been collected over the centuries by local people who have either experienced or heard tell, stories of witchcraft, fairies, ghosts and bogles down through the years. These stories are principally of Stonehouse and the surrounding area and recount events during a time when superstitions and fear of the unknown were prevalent.
In the year 2006 ‘Ghaists an’ Ghoulies’ guided walks were organised around the conservation area of the village and the old kirk cemetery and proved extremely popular in recounting these tales and re-telling stories which if not recorded will vanish in the mists of time. This booklet has been produced to recall these events in exploring the unknown and mysterious occurrences to befall this ancient parish down the centuries from the crib to the crypt. So, sit down, relax, light a candle and keep an eye open in recounting Stonehouse’s very own tales of the unexpected....and please remember .... don’t read alone!
