The Blue Men of the Minch

Douglas Robertson’s artwork and the poem that inspired it can be seen here whilst the chapter on the Blue Men in Donald A. Mackenzie’s ‘Scottish Folk-Lore and Folk Life’ from which the poem was taken is here .

This entry from Undiscovered Scotland places the Blue Men on the Shiant Isles whilst this one from Sea Harris (who will take you to the Shiants from Tarbert, Harris) sites their lair in undersea caves in the Sound of Shiant.

There are plenty of other pages on the Blue Men of the Minch and I hope that this brief entry might inspire you to seek them out…
