Description

The Mermaid of Benbecula
by Michaela Sagatova

In 1830, according to local lore, a group of women were cutting seaweed at low tide when they were startled by a loud splash from an otherwise calm sea. Approaching the spot the ladies were surprised to see a miniature woman splashing about the surf.
At once they summoned the men and boys of the village who tried in vain to capture the creature.
One of the boys threw a stone and struck the mermaid and she disappeared under the waves.
A few days later it is said that her body washed up on shore nearby, and she was buried in a coffin with a special shroud ordered by the sherif.
