Absolutely beautiful

I absolutely love this one.
The person reading it is absolutely perfect for the style of stories and incredibly relaxing to listen to.
The stories themselves are brilliant but for me you can never go wrong with this style of story.

Myths and lore from the past

This collection of tales from the Scots correlates with those from Wales and Ireland and seem less doom and gloom than those of the mainland. Magic, adventure, giants, and goddesses populate this interest collection.
Chekijian gave a fine audio performance once again.

Shocking accent.

I don't know where the narrator is from but his accent is painfully contrived. The worst crime is his frequently repeated mispronunciation of Gaelic which, when referring to Scottish people/language should be pronounced Gallic not gail-ik. The stories are amazing but I can't listen to this numpty reading them.
