Hmm. Maybe I'll add it to my 652-title reading list. ;-)

I don't know if you'd like it or not, but there's a scene early on in the book in which a Scottish ghost makes a memorable appearance.
No! Never read Outlander. I presume you'd recommend it, yes? I wouldn't mind visiting Scotland again; that's for sure. :-)
REALLY, reesetee? Do tell! Have you read Outlander by any chance?

Never did a ghost tour there, but I did think I saw an actual ghost in Edinburgh. Could have been all the advertising. ;-)

Did the hokey ghost tour in Edinburgh. Might have a short story about it on my blog soon. And Macbeth's castle is about 200 metres away so perhaps Banquo will come a-visiting?
Well, okay. There is the weather....Have you seen any ghosts?
It rains. Once you get used to the idea that air is naturally wet, cold and moves sideways, it's fine.Heard a man say "Och, aye!" (twice) in the supermarket yesterday and I really knew I had arrived.
Lucky you, bilby! Scotland is lovely. :-)
Indeed John. There's a kilt shop just down the road - I'm living in Scotland for a wee while - and I noticed that in the shop they refer to them as glengarry bonnets rather than glengarries. Probably the usage differs from region to region.
