“She waited for the last spirit to return to her
empty grave. When she saw the ghost approach
she stood upon the tomb with staff in hand and declared…
‘I cannot let you pass!’”
Okay, you had us at empty grave. This is a brief passage from the legend of how Brahan Seer gained the gift of second site. Registered charity, High Life Highland asked us to animate this and several other tales from a suite of legends for their Inverness Castle tour.
Each legend depicts visions Brahan had seen coming, and eventually his death, which we’re pretty sure he did not.
