S5E5 – The Kelpies of Kintyre

The Kelpies of Kintyre

Kintyre is the name of a mysterious (and objectively NOT sexy) peninsula in the western highlands of Scotland. Alasdair plumbs its depths, skips along its beaches and gazes at its glinting surface, hypnotised by his own reflection. Oh yeah, and he also told James a bundle of tales from the collection of Cuthbert Bede. We’re talking tartan pirates, shapeshifting kelpies and one very lucky ship’s cat.

Will Daft Wattie the piper be there? You betcha.


The Loremen are Alasdair Beckett-King & James Shakeshaft.
