Bauchans, Blue Men of the Minch, Black Dogs, Changelings, Gruagachs, Mermaids, Urisks, Vampires, Warlocks . . . these are only some of the strange creatures that haunt the folk tales and old beliefs of Scotland. Every locality--almost every hill, stream or loch--was once thought to be inhabited by supernatural beings that lived side by side with mankind and the visible world. In every part of Scotland, legends were told and songs were sung about things that only came out after dark, or which lured travelers to a dreadful fate by disguising themselves as harmless birds or dogs. The listeners would follow the stories with bated breath, and huddle closer together, closer to the safety of the fireside.
