Summer 2007

I took a journey to visit the shrine of Tigh na Cailliche, located in a remote glen at the head of Glen Lyon.

In spring an estate worker brings the stones out of the low turf-roofed shrine. The stones are returned at the onset of winter. The largest water-worn stone is known as The Cailleach, hag, old woman. The second largest is known as The Bodach, old man, husband. The third largest stone is The Nighean, daughter or girl.
