Sketch by John Francis Campbell, thought to be made with peat
Sketch by John Francis Campbell, thought to be made with peat. The sketch shows a vision of many different characters that appear in Gaelic folktales, from the medieval heroes (at the back) to mythical and supernatural beings, such as witches, cats, water creatures etc. Campbell later developed this sketch for use in vol. 4 of his book Popular Tales of the West Highlands.
