8 Scary Scottish Books
Blame a turbulent history and the long dark winter nights! Scotland’s authors have produced some of the scariest stories ever. The pen that brought us classics like Treasure Island also gave us the chilling tale of a brutal alter ego who takes over another man’s life. The creator of Sherlock Holmes also wrote of a reanimated Egyptian mummy, a mutilated ghost and savage aerial monsters preying on aviators.
Modern Scottish writers have added a spin to this creepy tradition with tales featuring a long-distance lorry driver pursued by something inhuman, and a group of disaffected teens at an outdoor centre who have a gory confrontation with demons.
