Description

Who saw the Queen’s Bahookie? Which castle had an annual rent of one red rose? Which maiden was most feared by Scottish aristocrats? Which job is worse – turnbrochie or pigeon-plucker? Which castle is associated with flying cows? What treasure was brought to the surface by a mole? Who would want to marry Archibald the Grim? Robin turns his poetic and storytelling attention to tales he found in various crumbling castle walls; the plotting and shenanigans of royals and aristocrats over centuries, and a few other titbits.
