A horrible tale for Halloween. This is a retelling in my own style of a Scottish Folk tale. It is loosely based on a real story. WARNING: There is nothing that will get an "adults only" warning but the narrative, although humourous, does get really greusome at times

 

***

Footnote: This tongue in cheek retelling of the story of Sawney Bean is greatly fictionalised up until the time of their arrest. From there I have described the trial by ordeal very accurately although some details of the tortures had to be toned down a tad as the tortures used for the clan were ingenious in the extreme. Nobody knows what happened to the remains, most likely they were buried in lime in unconsecrated ground.
