Folklore Scotland

Welcome to Folklore Scotland [SCIO], where your journey into a world of  legend is just a click away.

We want to make it as easy as possible to navigate the myths and legends of Scotland, so we have compiled the stories on our website into regional collections. We hope to build on our collection of stories by working with our team, contributors and partners. As a body, we seek to promote and preserve Scottish folkloric heritage by telling the tales of the past with the technology of today. You can learn more about our mission on our About Us page.

Scottish Myths & Legends: Our Projects

In addition to compiling a diverse selection of folk tales on our website, we are also working with our sister site, Albion Adventures to develop an app. This app will use audio, visual and written elements to immerse the user in a story as they make their way around real sites from Scottish folklore.

We believe storytelling imparts valuable lessons on individuals and society alike and we hope to continue creating quality content that will help engage people with this tradition. Ultimately, we seek to utilise a strengthened engagement with fantasy to help the promotion and preservation of cultural heritage through the art of traditional storytelling with a 21st century twist. 

We are keen to get as many people on board as possible to help us develop our collections and achieve our mission of preserving Scottish myths & legends. If you are interested in  contributing, our contact details can be found on the About Us page.
