Folklore Tales

Heading up Glen Lednock you’ll find that Deil’ (the devil) and his cauldron hiding in the woods. One of nature’s great creations. It’s a fast-flowing waterfall that shoots water out of a gorge into a deep pool below.  Local legend says that a water-elf called Uris Chidh stays here and attempts to lure victims into the treacherous waters.

The Deil’s Cauldron, where the River Lednock cascades out dramatically into the falls. The Gaelic for the falls is Slocha’n Donish, and the legend goes that they were inhabited by a mischievous water elf called Uris-chidh who would entice victims down into its lair. There are stairs down to a wooden platform from which you can admire the view and take photos.

The Deil’s Cauldron is a narrow river gorge in the Ben Ledi Grit Formation, a metamorphosed sandstone of the latest Precambrian-earliest Cambrian age, located in central Scotland. The fast river flows to a group of deep, dark pools.

Living in the pools is a water elf called Uris-chidh. The elf gets lonely, so he sets out to find a companion by playing a compelling tune on his pipe, luring people into the pools to their death. So if you’re around the pools and hear Uris-chidh’s tune, remain vigilant and remember the only ones who live to tell the tale are the ones who ignore his music.

Comrie

Scotland’s Earthquake Village – or Shaky Toun…

Shaky Toun

Comrie, also known as the Shaky Toun, lies close to the Highland Boundary Fault and has suffered more earthquakes than anywhere else in Scotland.

Despite the country not being generally associated with earthquakes or tremors, Scotland actually housed the world’s first seismometer, which was built and installed in Comrie – one of the most geologically active areas in the United Kingdom.
