About this book

Devoting his life to collecting the superstitions, folk tales and customs of the people in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland in the mid-late nineteenth century, John Gregorson Campbell presents a wealth of superstitions, folk tales and customs of the Highlanders and Islanders of his day.

From the superstitions and customs associated with the old Celtic calendar, to old spells and charms and the meaning of dreams, Campbell’s work remains one of the most important contributions to the field of folklore today.
