*Until the 18th century, wolves roamed the  deep wooded glens of Scotland and struck fear into the hearts of many, to the  extent that shelters or `spittals` were built in remote areas. Travellers  would progress only as far as the `spittal` before nightfall, while outside  the wolves howled on the chill northern wind. Think on this as you munch your  scone at 11:00am.
