Malcolm Robinson has been circulating emails for a while regarding his new book, “UFO Case Files Of Scotland” and recently (19th December 2009) the Daily Telegraph has dedicated a substantial article on their website publicising this, an article which deals mainly with the intriguing, “A70 Abduction Case.”
This is a well known and alarming abduction scenario in which practically every researcher who has met/interviewed the original witnesses says that they believe that the witnesses are grounded and are very sure that they (witnesses) believe this event actually happened. As one would perhaps expect after such an incident the witnesses entrenched themselves into the UFO/abduction phenomenon and much was made of this as being an influential factor revealing itself in their later testimonies, however this doesn't detract from their original claims and the immediate events surrounding them.
What follows is a transcript of a session in an A70 related typical hypnotic regression supervised and conducted by Helen Walters:
• Helen: “I want you to relive that night Colin, see it, feel it where are you?”
• Colin: “Nowhere”.
• Helen: “Where is nowhere”. Colin: “Just nowhere, complete blackness”.
• Helen: “What are you looking at, what are you trying to see?”
• Colin: “I feel I'm going up”.
• Helen: “Going up?”
• Colin: “Uh huh”.
• Helen: “See it, feel it, can you hear anything”?
• Colin: “Nothing” Helen: “See it Colin, nothing can harm you at this moment, listen to the sound of my voice”, Colin's body jerked suddenly.
• Colin: “ Creatures, I'm telling them to get lost”.
• Helen: “Where are you”?
• Colin: “I'm in a Bright room”.
• Helen: “What are they doing”?
• Colin: “They're trying to undress me”.
• Helen: “Tell me what's happening Colin”.
• Colin: “I'm sitting with no clothes on”.
• Helen: “Where are you sitting”?
• Colin: “A metal chair, it's smooth and cold”.
• Helen: “How do you feel”?
• Colin: “Just cold”.
• Helen: “Tell me what is happening Colin”?
• Colin: “Something's in my right eye”.
• Helen: “What's in your right eye”?
• Colin: “I don't know, it's uncomfortable, like a red hot poker in the centre of my eye, it's really sore”.
• Helen: “Who is putting this hot poker I to your eye”?
• Colin: “I can't see anything”.
• Helen: “Is your left eye open”?
• Colin: “Uh huh”
• Helen: “Why are you shaking your head”? At this point Colin was moving his head from side to side.
• Colin: “I'm trying to get a good look at the thing, the thing that's doing this to me to me”. Helen: “What's Happening now”?
• Colin: “Just took it out of my eye, my right eye's really burning, my eye's really watering, it's gushing”.
• Helen; “What kind of material was it, what did it feel like”?
• Colin; “It felt like there was something clamped on it, that there was something going into my eye”.
• Helen: “How did you get there Colin, how did you get there? I want you to relive your journey”
• Colin: “The car is in a big, bright, metallic room”.
• Helen: “How did it get there”?
• Colin: “It was lifted”.
• Helen: “How was it lifted”?
• Colin: “I don't know, I just feel it juddering and being lifted”.
• Helen: “OK, go back to the beginning of your journey”.
• Colin: “Just passing the reservoir on the left hand side, just passing the farmhouse on the right. Doesn't make sense, there's no road, nothing; the car is definitely off it. There seems to be some kind of force, there is nothing physical that I can see. I'm cold; I'm getting carried along at some rate”. Colin's body gave a powerful twitch. “I'm in that chair again…something's looking at me back in the corridor, it's…it was…ahhh…it's ugly”.
• Helen: “Describe it Colin, describe the ugly thing”.
• Colin: “It's ugly and it's lurking in that corridor, it comes and goes, it seems ancient to me. Ugly…it's really badly deformed, I'm not scared of it any more”. Colin began to laugh. “It seems that this thing has been in a fight and it's the loser. I think it's trying to manipulate me”.
• Helen: “In what way”?
• Colin: “I don't know, ii think I'm pissing it off because I'm not scared any more. I'm laughing at it, it's weird it's away”. Colin's head turned to the right. “ I can hear a noise behind me, I can't think of a word to describe it”. His body convulsed briefly. “I'm staring at a wee one”.
• Helen: “A wee what”?
• Colin: “ A wee creature, it's not very happy with me, I don't think I was supposed to look behind my chair for some reason. It's looking at me with those black eyes but I'll not give in”. Helen: “You won't give in to what”?
• Colin: “It's trying to outstare me. It's away; I don't think it was very pleased with me. It just doesn't want me to see what is behind me for some reason. If I try to do anything they'll come round the corner and stop me”.
• Helen: “What do you have on Colin”?
• Colin: “Nothing, the chair is freezing, I keep wanting to get out of the chair but I bet it will be a big mistake”.
• Helen: “Did they speak to you”?
• Colin: “No, but I could tell it was pissed off. I'm looking at something, it looks like some sort of surgery tool, I think that's what went into my eye”.
• Helen: “Can you describe it”?
• Colin: “It sort of comes down and bends to the left and then bends down again, it's hard to describe. I've never see anything like it, it separates into four and there's all just things hanging from it”.
• Helen: “Move on from there Colin”. He convulsed again. “What's happening Colin”?
• Colin: “Two of them have got me by the feet and are dragging me toward a small archway”.
• Helen “How did you get out of the chair”? Colin: “They grabbed me by the feet, I think I pushed them off”.
• Helen: “What's happening now”?
• Colin: “They're dragging me back to the car, they're not fussy about hurting me”. More convulsions
• Helen: “Where are you now”?
• Colin: “Back in the car, back in the seat”.
• Helen: “Do you have your clothes on”?
• Colin: “Yes”.
• Helen: “Go back to when you put your clothes on, what's happening”?
• Colin: “Putting my clothes on”.
• Helen: “Who”?
• Colin: “The wee aliens”.
• Helen: “How many are there”?
• Colin: “Four”. Again more convulsions. “There is a big alien in front of me doing something, my head is pounding. I don't know if it's giving me something or taking something out of my head. My mind goes black, then lighter, my head feels numb, it feels massive, it feels as if I've got a big forehead”. Colin's hand came up and he rubbed forehead vigorously”
• Helen: “What's happening”?
• Colin: “Shooting pain, I don't know what they have done but it's weird, my brain feels like it's swollen and pushing my head out like it's going to burst. I can't handle this, it's stopped, it's weird”.
• Helen: “Can you move on, where are you now”?
• Colin: “Back on the road”.
• Helen: “How did you get there”?
• Colin: “Big bang then a thud”.
• Helen: “Anyone in the car with you”?
• Colin: “Gary's looking at m, he's bewildered, Garry's asking me, did you see what I saw”?
• Helen: “ Did you see Garry on your travels”?
• Colin: “No, just now”.

And finally here's the Daily Record article:
Scotland's biggest UFO mystery comes to light in startling new book
A REMARKABLE new book explores the mysterious world of UFO sightings in Scotland and tells in full detail the country's first reported case of alien abduction. Author and investigator Malcolm Robinson probed the incident which took place as friends Garry Wood and Colin Wright, now 46 and 42, were driving to the village of Tarbrax, West Lothian 17 years ago. Their journey was supposed to take 30 minutes. When they reached their destination, they were an hour and a half late and could not account for the time. They later recalled, in amazing detail under hypnosis, how a space ship hovered in front of them before they were beamed on board the craft, stripped and examined by strange creatures before being beamed back to earth. The men have never changed their stories and even passed a lie detector test on TV. Their experiences are now referred to as the ' A70 Incident '. Malcolm, founder of Strange Phenomena Investigations and an acknowledged UFO expert, carried out an inquiry into their claims, which had a massive impact on him. After the case emerged he stated:
"I was an ardent sceptic. I really didn't think there was any validity to these tales of machines flying about the Scottish skies. But once you physically get involved in investigating these subjects, then you come off the fence. After a few years of investigation, there's enough substantial data to validate the people that have been saying these things."
The A70 Incident forms a major section of Malcolm's new book UFO Case Files of Scotland, which analyses various sightings across Scotland in recent years. He's now helping film producers who plan to turn the story into a movie. Malcolm and the two men are contracted to the film-makers and are not permitted to speak in public about the A70 Incident. When their story is told on the big screen the world will astounded by the events of that night in 1992. Almost all UFO reports have natural identifiable explanations - as many as 95 per cent. That leaves only a small five per cent of unidentified cases. Malcolm Robinson set up Strange Phenomena Investigations (SPI) to research UFOs and the paranormal in the Seventies, but it wasn't until the Nineties that his hardened scepticism was broken.
It was August 17, 1992, just after 11.30pm, when Garry Wood and his friend Colin Wright left Edinburgh, heading to a friend's house in Tarbrax to drop off a satellite system. Garry's car was travelling at 40mph and there was little traffic about. The car had just passed Harperrig Reservoir when Colin and Garry saw a two-tiered disc-shaped object hovering 20ft above the road - and it definitely wasn't an aircraft or helicopter. Both were scared and ambulance repair man Garry put his foot down and screamed under the object, using his elbow to lock the doors. The object emitted a silver, shimmering mist and as it touched the car, both men were enveloped in total darkness. What seemed to be second later, the pair regained their sight. Garry, still driving like a madman, was fighting hard to control the car but managed to regain his composure. Reaching their destination, Garry recalls frantically banging on the door. His concerned friend answered wondering where the two of them had been as they were 90 minutes late. They described their experience and asked for pens and paper to draw what they had seen. They left to return to Edinburgh, taking a different route home, but Garry had the feeling something else had happened. Soon after the encounter, he was bothered by strange dreams, he developed severe headaches and even had a CAT scan - but nothing unusual was found. He began to think perhaps it was a UFO, but didn't want to accept that possibility. After all, he had no interest in such tales and Colin certainly didn't believe in such things. Garry visited his library in the hope of finding UFO literature. He came across details for Strange Phenomena Investigations and decided to contact its founder Malcolm Robinson. Robinson listened intently and knew something very strange had occurred to both men - head and shoulders above the usual close encounter experience. A meeting was arranged and Robinson invited Garry and Colin to his home, Robinson said:
“I have never met such honest and sincere individuals. One could see the trauma they had suffered and were still suffering. It sent shivers down my spine. I believed in them."
Helen Walters, a qualified hypnotherapist and psychic, was called in to help get to the bottom of the mystery through hypnotic regression. During his first session, Garry burst into tears and was distraught, but Colin remained calm. Over the course of several weeks, Garry recalled seeing vague shapes, while both men's bodies jolted as they recalled the encounter. The results of the hypnotic regression made for startling and harrowing reading. Both men stated the car was stopped, after which the doors were opened by three small entities. Colin recalled Garry being placed on a free-floating stretcher. Garry experienced tremendous abdominal pain and recalled another entity lurking behind part of the UFO. Colin was led up a ramp into the object, where he found himself in a round room with a curved chair. Colin was stripped naked and placed on the chair, where a medical examination was conducted on him. Gary remembers being taken into a round room with a raised table. He too was stripped and placed on the table. Here are both men's stories:
A grey arm was dropped on to his chest. The small being was four and a half feet tall with a child-like body, a large pear-shaped head with black eyes. Garry also saw small brown beings with folds of skin covering their faces and a small man dressed in a black suit with tie. He recalled lying naked with two small creatures at the foot of the table, one holding a bright diamond-shaped object, which pulsated with an orange light. The creature then began moving the diamond over his body. To his left, sitting on the floor, was a naked female who was crying and shivering. He said in his mind, "Why are you doing this?"
The reply he got was simply, "Sanctuary."
Colin found himself in a large glass or perspex chamber, naked and strapped by the wrists and ankles. Although he could only move his head slightly, he observed many other chambers containing people. He also recalled feeling as if a red hot poker was being inserted into his eye and his brain feeling as if it had swollen. He was then dragged across the room by creatures before being dressed by "the wee aliens" and put back in the car. Both men came back from their encounter with scars which previously were not there, which further added to the mystery. Robinson observed afterwards:
"By far this is probably Scotland's biggest UFO case. This case not only dealt with a close proximity UFO, it also dealt with 'beings'. For me, this was the case which took me off the proverbial sceptical fence. I dealt with it hands on and saw the trauma both men experienced. I felt their pain. I was totally convinced these men did not make it up, far from it. They wanted no publicity. It came purely because I advocated it. I needed Garry and Colin to come out, whereby it was hoped similar abductees would come forward. I was gobsmacked by world reaction and the intense media frenzy."
Garry and Colin were left bemused by the whole episode. Their lives may have changed, but they are still the men they were - albeit with a different perspective on life.
