S4E4 – The Legend of Ticonderoga

The Legend of Ticonderoga

Alasdair brings out the big Scottish guns: Ranald McDanald AND Donald McRonald and shares the tales of two Scotsmen who fought on opposing sides at the Battle of Cullodden. 

Donald Ban of the Bogan wound up haunted by a ghostly Sid James, while Duncan Campbell of Inverawe was cursed to live in fear of a mysterious place – “Ticonderoga”.

The Loremen are Alasdair Beckett-King & James Shakeshaft.
