Our latest magical excursion takes us up to Scotland, to discover some traditional Scottish folktales. Meet the mysterious shape-shifting creatures known as selkies that swim close to the coast of Duncansby Head, right near John O’Groats. But what exactly is a selkie - and how did one bravely manage to turn a seal-killer from foe, to friend? Our journey then takes a turn down to the mystical area of Nithsdale, to learn about one woman's encounter with a member of the faerie folk - where all might not be as it seems.
