Glaistig of Erray

The glaistig at Erray near Tobermory paid attention principally to the barn. The herdsman slept in the byre, and he often hear trampling in the adjoining barn. Whatever had been left there at night was found in the morning all in confusion, topsy-turvy, one leg over the other. All this was the glaistig's doing.
