Glaistig of Strathglass

The gruagach or glaistig that haunted the house of Mac 'ic Alasdair, in Strathglass, was never seen, but was commonly heard putting dishes in order. She often led strangers astray through the house. She took a fancy to a shepherd from Morvern and he suffered a great deal of annoyance from her, though no ultimate loss.
