Young Adult - setting: Europe maybe - involves Invisible beast that could talk.

I can't remember very much of this book which is the reason it is driving me crazy. 


From what I can remember is that a man is cursed to be plagued by an invisible demon due to some pass realitive. 

I want to say that it takes place in Europe or Scottland due to the frequent use of the words lad & lass and not 100% sure on this, but later taking a boat to a new country.

The story is really a back & forth between the man/his family & the beast ultimately ending with the man capturing the beast and striking a deal in which the beast serves the family. 


Any help identifying this book would be greatly appreciated.
