Fairies, sprites, or pixies, as the case may be, have recently hit the headlines in Scotland. Fish Farmers recently launched a campaign in order to establish fish farms on the Isle of Skye.
After activists warned that fairies may lure fishermen to their deaths, the proposed Scottish fish farm was denied. That’s correct, we’re talking about the legendary beings known as fairies, who have been a part of mythology for centuries.
The Asrai, according to the Flodigarry Fairies, have been in the seas off the Scottish isles of Skye for almost 1,000 years and might be in danger.
They also cautioned that laborers may be enticed into the deepest part of the ocean by malevolent water spirits promising wealth 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.
Several skeletons of fairies, varying in size from a few inches to several feet, have been discovered. This narrative particularly interests me because of the fairy rings discovered on the island. The fairy rings have a reputation for being deadly to humans. If you wander into a fairy ring, legend has it that you will either be trapped in the fairy realm or forced to dance around the ring until you die.
