Mieg Moulach

by Micha F. Lindemans

A household spirit of the brownie type. She was attached to the Grant family of Tullochgorm (Strathspey, Scotland). Mieg Moulach performed the usual brownie labors but also assisted the clan chief in defeating his opponents at chess. In addition, she functioned as a banshee, announcing the death of a family member.

There may be a connection to Maug Vuluchd, a brownie of a farmhouse at Achnarrow in Glenlivit.
