Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900's and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. THE study of the folk lore of Lowland Scotland reveals to us in scanty uncertain glimmers some shadowy conception of the aboriginal inhabitants of what was in sober truth a stern and wild Caledonia. Ancient haunts of men have numberless tongues for those who know how to hear them speak.

A bit dull even for a Lowlander like myself . Much of it was not in what I think of as Lowland Scotland.

There are some interesting anecdotes in here; whether you believe they happened is, I suppose, up to you and your worldview. However, any derivation of "Beltane" (May 1, the beginning of summer) or any Scottish words or customs from the Babylonian "Baal" is linguistically bonkers. At best, it's wishful thinking for people who really want to believe that Celts had a Middle-Eastern origin. That's as may be, but you would think a theory of that weight would have better support than folk etymology! The anecdotes are fun and could be inspiring for role-playing games or creative work. I don't trust a lot of what this book has to say in terms of larger theories, though, because of the silly "Baal" derivation.
