Our Mythical Hound. According to Scottish folklore, the cù-sìth is said to be the size of a young bull with the appearance of a dog.
Its fur is shaggy, and usually cited as being dark green though sometimes white.
Its tail is described as being long and either coiled up or plaited (braided).
Its paws are described as being the width of a man’s hand.
The cù-sìth is thought to make its home in the clefts of rocks and to roam the moors of the Highlands.
