Scottish Witches

I became aware of the Witch Trials that occurred between the 16th and 18th centuries in the late 1980s after stumbling across a historical book which provided some details relating to them.

When talking about witches most people think of an old woman with green skin, a long nose and a pointed hat, yet the reality is those who suffered terribly during this dark period of history were simply normal people. 

It was quite shocking to me to learn the extent of the persecution and prosecution in Scotland, and I wanted to learn more. 

Over the years I have collated details of trials from across the country and my research continues. While I previously included this information on earlier versions of the Haunted Explorer website, I have made the decision that this should more correctly be published on a separate website dedicated to the historic witch trials. You can see the blog posts from the witch trial website below and if you want to check out the other information, please click HERE
