An ugly being in Scottish Gaelic story, also called Dìreach Eitidh MhicCalain, the desert creature of Glen Eiti, of the son of Colin. He was a giant, and a wood cutter. He had but one leg attached to his haunch, one hand protruding from the ridge of his chest, and one eye. A tuft of hair sprang from his head which was nigh impossible to bend. He went a great pace before the Irish king Murdoch MacBrian, who had lost sight of his red-eared hound, and his deer, in Ireland. See also Fer Caille.
