Two men were out hiking in the Scottish countryside in Spring 2016 when they were stopped in their tracks by an eerie outburst. The muffled sound resembled the distressed cries of an animal. And, when they followed the wailing noise to its source, the pair were disquieted to discover a terrified creature trapped underground.
Scotland’s spectacular scenery is famous across the world. Each year about two and a half million people arrive from overseas to soak up the small country’s natural beauty. However, the more than five million people who live in the nation are lucky enough to have these lovely landscapes on their doorstep.
With that in mind, in 2016 the 20-something Lochy Macleod and his middle-aged mate, Charlie, were out enjoying the countryside near their homes in the Glasgow area. But, as the pair admired the beauty of their surroundings, something pulled them up short. Although they could not see anything untoward on the moorland, they could certainly hear something unusual.
