1.0 out of 5 stars Whit a dunderheid! 6 Mar 2005
A putrescent miasma of speculation, poor research and Fraud. The mess thet Buckland potrays as "Pectiwita" is basically a poor version of modern Wicca dressed up to con the gullible and the inexperienced. If you want to know about Scottish Paganism, look at Asatru, Celtic Reconstructionism and Scottish Folklore Traditions and Customs. You CAN practice Wicca and celebrate your Scottish/ Celtic heritage or affiliations, but none of us Scots were Wiccan till the 1940s. Sorry!
As for Buckland- Gonnae no dae that!

1.0 out of 5 stars Avoid 3 Aug 2014
Suddenly gave across this on my list of past purchases awaiting review. Not sure how long its been sitting here, but I bought it some years ago, before I had heard of Raymond Buckland, if I had heard of him first then I never would have bought it. Basically, its drivel! Buckland professes to give details of a form of pagan belief which he calls Pictish Wicca. Having researched this it seems that there is no evidence to suggest that any of the claims he makes for this "ancient" religion are accurate. Furthermore, there is no evidence of the existence of the person to whom he attributes the carrying forward of this belief. Many people suggest that Buckland made it up. I can't say that for sure as I don't know, but would definitely take this book with a pinch of salt.

This book is all you need to guide you on every step of becoming a Pecti Witan. Instructions include how to make the necessary tools, the deity's to worship, the rituals, and basically everything you need to understand to live everyday life in Pecti Wita. Perhaps not as intense as Wiccan studies, but none the less a beautiful way of living alongside nature. A very good read if you are truly interested in living by nature.
