PostSubject: WItches of East Lothian   Wed 15 Oct 2008, 9:06 am

I'm off on a bit of a tour of East Lothian tomorrow, mainly to visit some of the witch burning sites and related locations, but does anyone have any suggestions as to what else I should have a look at?

Anything that needs a picture for the website would do in my opinion.

Penkaet Castle on the new webbie doent have a picture, if its not too far out of your way, however i cant tell you where it is Sad

Hopfully Ian or Dan will see this post and may have a few ideas.

The porch way of the Auld Kirk in North Berwick still stands I believe. It was here that the North Berwick Witches, Dr Fian and the devil would meet up.

To be honest, there isn't much to be seen at the kirk at North Berwick. The porch does indeed still stand, however for safety and preservation, it's chained off.

However, I was told by my drunken associate last night when we planned this, that we may be visiting the location of Fian's home/dwelling. I'm not up on those details, but we'll also be taking a wee trip to Nether Keith, now a farm. A prize for anyone who can tell me who lived there...

Not sure of Penkaet, Lee. Can you enlighten me?

I'll be taking the camera and might even pen a few pieces if there's enough scope. Anything in particular you want images of? Don't think we'll be in North Berwick I'm afraid.

For Penkaet check out the forum thread, Another Haunted Bed, under Hauntings. Fian was school master, but i bet his school has gone now.

Cheers Ian, we'll swing by Penkaet if we can. Will report on the Fian site, whatever it is.

I should upload details of my wee trip but not had time yet, suffice to say that we found a deserted village, saw the dwelling where a witch lived 500 years ago which was in fact a 1960s bungalow, and I was accosted by an old hag!
