John Barrington

John Barrington is a retired hill shepherd who keeps himself busy as a storyteller – indoors or outdoors! His repertoire reflects his knowledge of the countryside and the stories of Scotland: its history and folklore, myths and legends, characters and heroes. He also tells ghost stories and his speciality is leading story-packed guided walks through the Trossachs, an area of wooded glens, braes, and lochs lying to the east of Ben Lomond. He is the author of Red Sky at Night (Luath Press, 2013).
