St Andrews is famous worldwide as the home of golf and for being the town where Kate Middleton met her future husband, Prince William. From the 12th century, the town was also home to the Scottish Church for 400 years until the reformation brought religious turmoil, violence and destruction to the area. With such a long and bloody history, St Andrews is also known to be home to many haunted sites. From the fearful poltergeist of Witch Hill, the site where those accused of witchcraft were burned at the stake, to the kind hearted Friar of St Rule's Tower, who still offers visitors a helping hand despite his gestures of good will resulting in his brutal murder centuries ago, Supernatural St Andrews covers the many tales of spectral clergymen, former students and residents, witches and phantom coaches, one of which is believed to carry the Devil himself.
Compiled by Paranormal Investigator, Gregor Stewart, this collection brings together in depth research into the history of the town and its hauntings, along with the authors extensive local knowledge, to produce one of the most complete guides to the town spooks.
Set out in four sections, with each covering a specific part of the town or the surrounding area, and richly illustrated with maps and photographs, Supernatural St Andrews offers the reader clear details of each location and provides any visitors the opportunity to guide themselves through the streets to the haunted hotspots to soak in the atmosphere for themselves.
