Thunder Hags

With all the talk of Scottish independence I thought I'd record a tale from the Highlands. Viewers will be relieved that I did not attempt one of my unforgivable Scottish accents. The original version of this story appears in MacKenzie's "Scottish Wonder Tales" which dates back about a century, though the stories are meant to be traditional ones going back much earlier.

  1. I'd never heard this story before but was immediately grabbed by the title. I especiallly liked the images of the hag peering from her chariot in the black cloud and the chariot thundering away making the rain.
