The Guide to Mysterious Arran (John Billingsley – Northern Earth)
This little book, one of several by the prolific Geoff Holder, encapsulates Scotland’s Isle of Arran in a typical neo-antiquarian perspective. Arranged into geographical areas, the likes of you and me would find this a great help on any visit to the island, with its collection of prehistory, folklore, supernatural phenomena, modern liminal art and related forteana. Lovers of fairylore are particularly well served. Readable and entertaining, and well illustrated with photographs, my main criticism would be that the only map, of the whole island, is small and unscaled.
