Coire agus Coin-Shìdh am Beàrnaraigh

  • Dòmhnall Mac Amhlaidh


A re-telling and short discussion of the popular story ‘The Tale of the Cauldron’ as told by the author’s grand-uncle in Bernera, Lewis – a story in which the protagonist is pursued by fairy dogs. This is followed by a place-name story, which the author heard from Iain Mac Coinnich (Iain Dhòmhnaill a’ Phìobair), also of Bernera, concerning Creag ’Ille Chaluim Ghlais, a fairy dwelling-place which was – according to the storyteller – the last place in which fairy dogs were ever seen.
