In this episode, Kitty shares the recent, and terrifying, experience of an Englishman John, while hiking in the woodland of the Isle of Man.

You can see John’s photos of this strange creature here: https://encounterswiththegoodpeople.com/index.php/2019/07/19/faerie-photos-on-the-isle-of-man-john-hall/

We also take a look the most feared of all Good People to dwell on the Isle of Man: the Buggane.

Grotesque, destructive, and sometimes headless.

This fella is best avoided altogether, but Kitty shares a few tips on what to do if you are unfortunate to cross paths with this Manx beast.

And don’t forget to get your name into the draw to win a brand new and autographed copy of Ronan Coghlan’s book ‘The Fairy Realm’.

Draw closes Friday 9th August 2019.


As always, Kitty encourages keeping an open mind and reminds you it’s okay to believe in the Good People.
