Stop At: Kinkell Church, Ardmurdo Cottages, Inverurie AB51 0LS, UK

Next stop in time is the a troubled one; a time of witchcraft. We’ll visit the resting place of Meriorie Elphinstone at the foot of the Bass reputedly a mythical place with a dark past and a stop at Kinkell church with links to the Knights Templar.

Stop At: Udny Green Church, Ellon AB41 7RU, UK

Last on our tour is Udny Green, a beautiful little village with a unique way to protect the departed from body snatchers. A roaring trade in the early 1800’s and much effort was made to keep churchyards safe.
Dark tales and legends to be taken with a pinch of salt as in true storyteller style, all stories have evolved over time.
