The Kelpies

The Kelpies

The Kelpie is a legendary Scottish shape shifting water spirit.  As the folklore goes they usually appear next to a body of water in the form of a beautiful horse in the attempt to lure the weary traveller to mount the beast.  But Beware! as once mounted with its glue like back, you will find it impossible to escape.  The Kelpie will gallop away, dragging you to the bottom of the nearest loch to meet a terrible fate,  here you will be devoured – apart from your heart and lungs.    These will rise to to top of the loch, floating there letting your loved ones know you have been eaten by the fearsome Kelpie.

These appear in a Robert Burns Poem ‘Address To The Deil’

Here is the verse

When thowes dissolve the snawy hoord,
An’ float the jinglin’ icy boord,
Then water-kelpies haunt the foord,
By your direction,
And ‘nighted trav’llers are allur’d
To their destruction.

Tantallon Castle

I took a wee trip to North Berwick, I wanted to visit Tantallon Castle. This is a semi-ruined 14th-century castle clinging to the cliff face, over looking the Bass Rock, This must have been a formidable fortification in its day.
