North, south, east, west - it seems that each part of the island has a ghostly tale to tell, as you'll see when you venture into our folklore pages.

You can explore the tales by location, (using the map below), or by choosing from the list to the left. It's up to you.

But beware - it may not be for the faint hearted...
