Recent headlines in Scotland have focused on fairies, sprites and pixies. Fish Farmers launched a campaign to create fish farms on the Isle of Skye.
The proposed Scottish fish farm was rejected after activists raised concerns that fairies could lure fishermen to their death. That’s correct, we’re talking about the legendary beings known as fairies, who have been a part of mythology for centuries.
According to the Flodigarry Fairies The Asrai are believed to have been living in the waters off of the Scottish Isles of Skye almost 1000 years ago and could be in danger.
They warned that laborers could be lured to the bottom of the ocean by evil water spirits promising riches and diamonds. This seems like something out of a fairy tale, but if you stick with me, there’s some troubling data and folklore to back it up.
A number of skeletons of fairies ranging in size from a few inches up to several feet have been found. Because of the fairy rings that were found on the island, this narrative is particularly fascinating to me. Fairy rings are known for being dangerous to humans. Folklore says that you can be trapped inside a fairy realm or made to dance around the ring until death if you stumble upon one.
