The Bean-nighe is a Scottish spirit, an ill bringer who would be seen washing the clothes of those soon to die. This creature has long breasts, slung over her shoulders, and if one was grabbed from behind she would tell to whom the clothes belonged; if yours, she could change fate. The owner of Moy Castle, upon seeing the creature, tried to grab it and failed - he died in battle the following day. As if this entity was not enough to contend with, the area is haunted by a headless horseman.
