Craig Meggy is a bon viveur, malt of the barley-fueled raconteur, occasional, and part-time Scottish Granny agony aunt (so he gives great advice and also tell you where to shove it).
After decades of talking total tosh, he's finally written some of it down and crafted an enjoyable tale "The Key-Stone of the Bridge" based loosely and extrapolated extensively from witnessing acts of pleasure, mirth, stupidity, the heartbreakers and the heartbroken all performed by anyone and everyone he's ever met - or at least those he remembers.
The Key-Stone of the Bridge
The Key-Stone of the Bridge reminds us that the Scots are different in so many ways. The unique characteristics are encapsulated in this tale a very Scottish tale, full of chills, thrills, ghosts, mystery, whisky, and suspense.
Four men are on a mission, to fulfill a last request and scatter the ashes of their friend on a mountain. They reunite at an allegedly haunted and isolated shelter amid the creaking bonds of an alliance built in the amber whisky haze of their misspent youth.
In beautiful and unusually calm winter weather, they complete their task, but then well, things start to get a little strange.
The mountains are usually deserted in winter but two visitors appear seeking shelter and tell of meeting a mystery hiker. That night has some strange goings on but they blame that on the whisky. Then when there is no sign of the mystery hiker, the four decide to look for him or his body. But the weather deteriorates, their misfortune grows and they return to find their sanctuary gone. Now, they are in a fight for their own survival.
Will they struggle through reach civilization and finally discover the shocking truth about their guests and the mystery hiker?
