I'm in the market for one or two books on Scottish legends and folktales.

It would be preferable if they took more of a story approach than a classification approach if that makes sense. Reason being I do colonial reenacting and, perhaps this sounds a bit silly, I would like to be able to tell stories related to my persona. Also just because I find them interesting.

Thistle and Thyme: Tales and Legends from Scotland by Sorche Nic Leodhas (he also wrote Heather and Broom: Tales of the Scottish Highlands) would fit the bill.

I found it working at an Elementary school, and the author is passing on stories he's translated from Gaelic that he's been told all of his life growing up in Scotland. It's very readable, the author is a great story teller, and it won the Newberry Honor Award (any Newberry book is usually a good read).

Good luck!

MI-I'm looking forward to seeing what else is posted too! I'll have to pick up the Mackenzie you recmmended Smiley I'm working with the Heathen pantheon just now, but my most recent ancestor to come over was from Scotland, and I'm very interested in the Scottish perspective on Bride/Brighid.
