Summary:

Folk tales and fairy lore in Gaelic and English collected from oral tradition. 'There was erewhile a rich knight whom people called the Knight of the Glens and Bens and Passes. Opposite this knight's castle was a pretty green knoll, and when he was standing on the top of it he could see every cow and horse and four-footed beast he had. On a fine sunny day he ascended this knoll and looked around, but not a living creature belonging to him was to be seen. He stood for a while where he was, thinking what had become of them, or where he should go in search of them.'
