A bit about Scotland

Scotland was first settled over 12,000 years ago and settlers began building the first known permanent houses on Scottish soil around 9,500 years ago. [1] So, as you can imagine, there are many many years of murders to research and report on. Scotland’s landscapes are some of the most breath-taking in the world, from the humungous mountains in the Highlands to the golden beaches strewn from coast to coast and dense forest lined roads that weave around Scotland.However, just like anywhere else in the world, scratch a little below the surface and you will find some of the most evil of killers lurking. Join us as we dive into the not so nice side of Scotland and tell you about some well known and not so well known murders, some mysterious murders, some shocking murders… all things murderous.Welcome to Scottish Murders.

A wee bit about the host, Dawn

I was born and lived on the west coast of Scotland until I was 25.While I enjoy listening to true crime stories from around the world, I have an even greater interest in murders that took place in Scotland or to Scottish people.  This is how the Scottish Murders podcast came about. I believe that every murder victim deserves to be remembered and this podcast aims to shine a light specifically on Scottish murder victims. So, if you have an interest in learning more about murders dedicated to people from or living in Scotland, read by me or Cole, then this is the podcast for you.

A wee bit about the occasional co-host, Cole

Hey guys! My name is Cole, I am Dawn’s little sister and you know they say, the first pancake never turns out quite how you want it. We grew up in the highlands but I moved to England when I was seven with my mum. Don’t worry though we were reunited eventually and let me tell you we did not do well living together! I really love true crime I actually can’t fall asleep without listening to a true crime podcast, I really just can’t get enough... which may cause me some nightmares but I will take that over having to listen to my own thoughts any day! I really hope you all love our podcast and hopefully you will become part of our wee true crime family.
