Description

Cailleach
by Michaela Sagatova

This deity, also known as Beira, is the ancient goddess of the Highlands, personification of winter and protector of wild animals. She carries a magical staff which freezes the ground as she leaps between hilltops bringing snow and frost. During warmer months it is said that she rests in the form of a stone or boulder.
