Today's Fair Folk of the day is the Ghillie Dhu. Kindly yet wild, he has a devotion to children and their protection. A solitary male Neighbhor, he was seen in the latter half of the 18th century. Residing in birch woods near Loch A Druing in Scotland, one summer evening a local child got lost in the woods. She was found by Ghillie Dhu, who looked after her until the next morning when he led her home. He was seen frequently in the woods for the next four decades.
