Scottish Lowland Fairies

scottish lowlands

The Scottish Lowlands and the border country are fertile, agriculturally rich area which allowed medieval Scotland to survive: in fact, Scotland’s great medieval miracle is that its kings, its lords and its peoples managed somehow to keep the English out of the territories dominated today by Edinburgh and Glasgow. The fairies here resemble in many ways the fairies further to the south in Northumberland, the Lakes and Yorkshire.
