9. Tomnahurich: the Fairy Hill of Inverness

Jenny and Annie go away with the fairies to explore the mythology of

Tomnahurich Cemetery in Inverness. This episode looks at folk legends of

giants, fairy parties and fiddlers lost in the night.

It also examines the curious relationship of Tomnahurich hill and Oliver

Cromwell’s control of Scotland during the 17th Century.

We go into detail on the life of Alexander Mackenzie, a Highland Historian

who was involved in the Highland Land League and whose gravestone is

missing from Tomnahurich Cemetery.

This weird and wonderful episode weaves in and out of imaginative folklore

and the genuine history of the Fairy Hill of Inverness, Tomnahurich.
