“Mind the clachan of Aberfoyle!”

Lake of Menteith, Aberfoyle, Perthshire

“Mind the clachan of Aberfoyle!” is the rousing clarion call that rings out again and again in Sir Walter Scott’s stirring novel Rob Roy. And there certainly are reasons aplenty to visit this beautiful little town. It’s the gateway to the Trossachs. It’s in the heart of Rob Roy country. It’s slap-bang in the middle of the Queen Elizabeth Forest Park, with the vast green acres of Loch Ard and Loch Achray forests right on its doorstep, just waiting to be explored and enjoyed. But Aberfoyle has a claim to fame that you may not be quite so familiar with: The strange case of the missing minister. And it’s an intriguing supernatural mystery!

Some of you might remember the old Scottish prayer that ends with these words: “From ghoulies and ghosties, And long-leggedy beasties, And things that go bump in the night, Good Lord, deliver us!” And you probably smile at such childish fears. Yet, no matter how rational we think ourselves, there’s still something about those ‘things that go bump in the night’ that can send a shiver down our spines. It can be anything from those childhood fears of ‘something under the bed’, to the widespread fear of the dark that many retain into adulthood.
