Found in 195 Collections and/or Records:
Story entitled 'L[aoidh] Amadan mhoir' [The Story of the Lay of the Great Fool] in which the king's son is under a spell and cannot be brought out of it. Anyone who tries to cure him is required to stay three nights, but each person is found dead except for the Amadan Mor [the great fool] 'because he was true to his trust'.
Story entitled 'Maighdean Mhara' about a mermaid in Loch Bhraoin [Loch Broom, Ros is Cromba/Ross and Cromarty] who appeared to a fishing crew and asked the helmsman for his leth-rann (half-stanza). He said, 'Long a thig sa theid an aithghearr, Sin mo leth-rann.' She said it was as well that was his reply and disappeared. A great storm occurred that day and many men were drowned. Consequently it is believed that when a mermaid like this one is seen, someone will drown soon after.
