In the depths of a hidden, 180-metre deep coastal cave in Scotland, the legend goes that Sawney Bean and his incestuous cult killed over a thousand people over more than two decades. Unsuspecting passers-by were robbed, killed then horrifically eaten in a bid to avoid detection. The gruesome story of how the cult grew has been retold in a spine-tingling tale.

Alexander “Sawney” Bean moved into the coastal cave in South Ayrshire, Scotland, between Girvan and Ballantrae, in the 16th Century.

After meeting Black Agnes Douglas having left his childhood home in East Lothian, the pair moved into the cave to save money.

With no source of income, the couple ambushed travellers on a nearby road before dragging them back to the cave, where they would be robbed and killed.

But keen to avoid detection from the authorities, the pair resorted to consuming the corpses, and pickling what they could not eat. They would later throw the bones into the sea.
