Tobermory is a very special city. The moment I saw it I thought what a wonderful filming location for a classic horror story it could make. Like Sleepy Hollow, for example. And you know what? As a matter of fact, Mull has its own headless horseman! 💀
There are numerous of stories about that ghosts attacks and some of them are quite fresh. For example, a Scottish journalist P.A. Macnab recalls, that when he was a kid the headless horseman attacked a grocery van.
But whose spirit is haunting the isle of Mull? He is in fact a ghost of Eoghan a’Chinn Bhig — Ewen of the Little Head— only son and heir of old John, fifth chief of the MacIaines of Lochbuie, and the event took place in the year 1538. He was married on a greedy woman, who convinced him to confront his own father. On the day before the fight he met a fairy who told him the following: “Beware, Ewen! If butter is placed unasked on your table tomorrow morning, you will prevail. But if it is not, and you have to ask for butter to be brought, it will go ill with you”. And should I mention there was no butter on his table next morning? His people got defeated and Ewen himself was decapitated in a battle by a Duart clansman. His horse ran away carrying the headless body on its back and, apparently, their final ride has never ended... #hauntedplaces #mosthaunted #folkhorror #headlesshorseman #scottishfolklore #gloomy_side_views #darkgrammer #moody_tones #agameoftones #renegade_dark #moodygrams #horrorstories #ghoststories #creepypasta #postcardplaces #isleofmull #scottishislands #innerhebrides #tobermory #historicscotland #scottishcollective #witchyvibes #icu_scotland #hiddenscotland #discoverscotland
