SCOTS MYTHS
#21


"Brownie: Good-natured, invisible brown elves or household goblins. The younger version of the "Girl Guides" in Britain at least, are called "Brownies" for that very reason!

Ghillie Dhu: A Solitary Scottish Elf.

Red Cap: Lives on the Scottish border in ancient ruins and castles.

Sidhe: The Gaelic name for fairies in both Ireland and the Highlands of Scotland."


Now you've hit on something I think is fun to read. Sidhe (pronounced "shee" or "shea") are what might be considered fairies in other places. Red Caps were told to be much darker and dangerous as they dye their caps with human blood. Every country has it's version of fae folk, including German goblins, kobolds, Swiss Zwerg, Italian folletti, Scottish brownies, Dutch alven, etc.

Before there were TV's and radio people entertained themselves with all kinds of stories. It's always a topic of conversation among researchers if any of these stories were based in any fact.

Skeptic: I can test if black cats are more or less lucky than another cat.
Cynic: You only have a black cat to gain power and prestige.
