From witchcraft and the evil eye to the “two sights,” ghosts and the supernatural denizens of the Highlands and Islands of Scotland, this volume presents material collected by folklorist and minister of Tiree, John Gregorson Campbell, in the mid-late nineteenth century. A native Gaelic speaker, Campbell presents many examples of prayers and charms in the original Gaelic, with English translations.
