Edinburgh

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on April 8, 2014 by gstewartauthor

I had another successful visit to Edinburgh, one of the best cities in the world. Found myself close to Greyfriars Kirkyard in the evening, so popped in to check out how it felt as the sun lowered in the sky. The big bonus for us this time was the cameras worked while taking photographs in both the Black Mausoleum and the Covenanter’s Prison.

The only part of the cemetery I didn’t like this time was feeling like I was constantly being watched by the figures on this tomb!

With darkness approaching, tour groups were starting to gather in the Kirkyard, so we headed off round the Grassmarket and up to the Castle before heading back down the Royal Mile, snapping away with the camera as we went! Gathered lots of photos of locations I have been wanting to visit/revisit for a while for 3 new projects I am working on, one exploring the tales of witches and wizards in Scotland, another exploring tales of the Devil in Scotland and last (but far from least) a fresh exploration of the haunted spots in the city, including many that are not so well known.

I can guarantee that the research for these books will require further visits to Edinburgh, which is something I’m more than happy about!

Edinburgh

Due to be visiting Edinburgh soon. Several places on the ‘to visit’ list for 2 new books, one exploring the less well known ghost stories of Edinburgh, and the other focusing on the witches and wizards from Scotland’s history. Greyfriars Kirkyard will be included as well and taking 2 cameras this time as last time the battery kept draining when taking photographs in the Covenanter’s prison. I will post some photos later in the week.

Haunted Kirkcaldy

Apologies for the lack of post recently, I’ve been working flat out to try to get the new book, Haunted Kirkcaldy, finished which has been hard going due to a shoulder injury. Still, it’s completed, and available for presale on Amazon Image The research for writing this book has been the hardest of all the books I have written. As far as I can tell, this is the first time ever all of the stories from the Kirkcaldy area have been brought together, so despite the work involved, it’s quite satisfying to see it completed.

With some spare time on my hands now though, I’m planning to set off exploring some more places, for future books, so should be posting updates on a more regular basis.
