Da Missin Brunnie

Told by Mary Blance. A not -so-serious story of the doings of trows.

Da Missin Brunnie Da Missin Brunnie Storyteller – Mary Blance, North Roe

Origin – Traditional

Storyteller Mary Blance is a weel kent voice locally through her association with BBC Radio Shetland. This tale reflects a perhaps slightly lighter side of dealing with trows. A supernatural sneak thief is tracked to his lair by an intrepid resident of Skerries who feels disinclined to share his supper with his trow neighbours.
