Dive deep into the heart of Scotland with this nostalgic and humorous collection from the acclaimed author of the global best-selling DCI Daley detective series, Denzil Meyrick.

In Kinloch Tales, readers are transported to the vibrant and bustling world of Kinloch, where they’ll be introduced to the delightful escapades of Sandy Hoynes and the crew of the Girl Maggie. Across three enchanting tales – A Large Measure of Snow, A Toast to the Old Stones, and Ghosts in the Gloaming – Meyrick masterfully weaves narratives brimming with ghostly Vikings, sea-faring adventures, and the settling of age-old scores. Each story is a lovingly crafted journey, offering both laughter and a touch of the mystical.

For fans of Scottish fiction reminiscent of Neil Munro’s celebrated Para Handy, this collection is an unmissable treasure. Every page conjures the rich tapestry of Scotland’s history, culture, and charm. As described by Roger Cox of The Scotsman, these tales are “wonderfully atmospheric, best consumed on a chilly winter’s night in front of a roaring fire with a bottle of single malt close to hand.”

Whether you’re a longtime admirer of Meyrick’s works or a newcomer seeking a taste of Scottish allure, Kinloch Tales: The Collected Stories promises a delightful and heartwarming escape.
