"Like ghostly phantoms on the wind,
they glide across the mire.
Their white hair flows like silver webs,
framing eyes of fire.
The gentle throb of an ancient drum,
no human ever made.
Music only gods should hear,
no human ever played."
-The Dance of the Druids by Pagan Altar
We watched the sun rise up over the Fairy Glen, and it was absolutely magical. The landscape around the Glen was stunning, and countless sheep were grazing in the hills.
What makes me saddens me is that this beautiful place is being ruined by tourists. All the stone circles that I believed to be thousands of years old, turned out to be made by tourists visiting the glen. To make it "more magical". As if the natural rock formation, also known as Castle Ewan, wasn't enough? And by doing so, they are disturbing the natural fauna and flora.
Tapadh leibh bhon Shidhichean.
The fairies don't like it either.
