The mythical kelpie is the Scots name given to a supernatural water horse that was said to haunt Scotland's lochs and lonely rivers. It has usually been described as appearing as a horse but is able to adopt human form. However, some accounts state that the Kelpie retains its hooves when appearing as a human, leading to its association with the Christian idea of Satan.
The kelpie would appear to its victims as a lost dark grey or white pony but could be identified by its constantly dripping mane. It would entice people to ride on its back, before taking them down to a watery grave. One specific story talks of a Kelpie captured by the Laird of Morphie. The Laird harnessed the strength of the horse-form Kelpie by using halter stamped with the sign of a cross.
The captor forced the kelpie to carry heavy stones to build his castle and when the work was complete, the laird released the kelpie who was understandably unhappy in its treatment.
The kelpie cursed the Laird of Morphie, a reason popularly believed to explain the extinction of the Laird family. Learn more. Accept Cookies. Home Features Scottish myths, folklore and l Scottish myths, folklore and legends 01 Apr Share:. Fingal's Cave.
