This album is the story of Margaret Aitken, the great witch of Balwearie. After having pled guilty under torture, she offered to help a commission of witch hunters to point out witches in all parts of the country in exchange for her life. During a period of four months, The Aitken commission visited several parts of Scotland and a large number of people were arrested, put on trial and burned on the stake after having been pointed out by her. Eventually Aitken is driven mad by the guilt and haunting glares she cannot ream from her mind of the innocent girls killed by her hand. Eventually she is proven to be a fraud and is burned at the stake herself. (This is our interpretation of the Story)
