Myths and stories of the Cairngorms
Date Posted: 16.17hrs on Thu 6 Mar 14
Hi all,

Has anyone got any interesting folklore/myths about the Cairngorms? Interested to hear more about these two stories but anyone heard any others?:

The Grey Man of Ben Macdui
The Ciste Mhearad - Margaret's Coffin myth

Cheers,
Tom

The Big Grey Man of Ben Macdhui was published by Affleck Gray in 1970.

Another Book that might interest you is "Legends of the Cairngorms" by Affleck Gray. Published in 1987. ISBN 1 85158 072 7. That has many stories. " The Big Grey Man" starts on page 170.

Hope this helps.
