Share your stories with Ben

While living in Aberlour I have gaithered many stories from the area of Speyside between Rothes and Ballindalloch. I have drawn together different versions of some of these stories and am aware that other variations on these  will have been passed down through families who have lived in the  communities of this mysterious and romantic part of Scotland for generations.

I am keen to gaither as many local tales and their variations as possible to capture the oral heritage of the area and record it for future generations.

Always remember that it is the story that matters, not the storyteller. If you know or are aware of different versions of the stories that will feature in the Story Kist. please contact me at:
