Malcolm Robinson, founder of the Strange Phenomena Investigations (SPI) group, details the cases he has personally investigated and that represent some of the major UFO incidents in Scotland during the past few decades.
There is a thorough examination of the wave of sightings in the Bonnybridge area, which got worldwide attention in the 1990s, as well as the late Robert Taylor's close encounter in Livingston and a wave of sightings in Fife.
Rather surprisingly, he suggests that Taylor might have encountered a military secret weapon rather than an alien spacecraft.
He also details Scotland's first alien abduction that took place in 1992, on the A70 near Harperrig Reservoir. It features the classic elements of missing time and memories of being examined onboard a UFO. This case alone challenged Malcolm's former scepticism and made him look at the phenomenon with new eyes.
Malcolm shows us the fantastic and fascinating complexities of UFO cases in Scotland and gives a balanced look at the wide variety of explanations that might account for them. Based on the reports in this book Malcolm puts forward the case that alien encounters do pose untold dangers for us in the future.

It's an easy yet detailed read including the funny side as well as the extremely serious side of UFO investigations. For the first time it relates, again in great detail, the Bonnybridge cases, Bob Taylor's encounter, the probable abduction with the A70 case and many many more extremely interesting accounts of one man's 30 years experinces.
If you are in the least interested in the subject of UFO's then this book is certainly worth having on your bookshelf. Absolutely fantastic read!
Such a controversial subject inevitably means that there's a great deal of trash written about the UFO phenomena. This books falls into that category - not because the author is a fantasist who fabricates evidence to support his own cause - but because the book is the most shameful example of written English I have ever encountered in print form.
The author's grasp of English is nothing more than awful. Who proof read this book? Who authorised its publication? Page 1 of the book contains the inappropriate use of apostrophes on two occasions, mixed in amongst clumsy, terribly constructed sentences. Reading the book gives the impression that it was written by a pre-pubescent school child then proof read by his illiterate mother.
I was genuinely looking forward to reading this book. Purchased for night time reading for a loch-side holiday in the Scottish Highlands, I laboured through its barely legible 'English', only to be distracted by the mono-toned, utterly dull musings of Alan Shearer during his BBC Euro 2012 'analysis'. That's how bad this book is.
It is a shame that Malcolm Robinson has made no attempt to make this book a credible publication. Over the past few decades, the author has invested time and effort into documenting several interesting cases and he should be commended for this. The raw data is there, but its presentation is extraordinarily poor. The UFO 'scene' suffers from a severe credibility crisis and publications such as UFO Case Files of Scotland serve no purpose other than to further cement UFO investigators' reputations as lunatics.
For the UFO lovers - stick to Hynek, Dolan and Vallee.
