by Amy M. Durante
The Pictish/Scottish male equivalent of Scotia he was also looked upon as the guardian of cattle, a bold warrior and brilliant sorcerer. The name means "the long haired one" and is a quite accurate depiction of Gruagach whose long hair is supposed to portray rays of the sun and therefore suggests that he was worshipped as a form of sun-god.
