Those with a keen interest in the esoteric and fantastical would enjoy a trip to these mystical sites. (Main picture: Loch Ness is one of Scotland's most ethereal stratches of waters)
1. Loch Ness
Home to Scotland's most famous monster, Loch Ness is one of Scotland's most ethereal lochs and has an air of mystery and long history of strange occurences.
The first of our entries linked with Arthurian legend, Drumelzier, a small village in the Borders, was said to be where the enchantress Morgan le Fay trapped Merlin in a tree.
3. The Minch
This stretch of water between Lewis and the mainland is said to be where The Blue men of the Minch (also known as storm kelpies), look for ships to sink and sailors to drown.
4. Melrose Abbey
The dilapidated monastery of Melrose Abbey is most famous for being the supposed burial ground of Robert The Bruces heart and also the site of one of Scotland's earliest vampire stories.
