[[Image:bauchan.jpg|thumb|155px|right|the bauchan]] The '''Bauchan''' (also'' bòcan'' [Ir.], ''bogan, buckawn'') is a type of [[brownie]] in Celtic mythology. ==Description== Bauchans are both male and female. They are exceedingly hairy. ==Behaviour== Bauchans are solitary creatures, that often attach themselves to human families. They mostly stay around just to play tricks, but can be very helpful when the proper mood strikes (i.e. - Callum mor Macintosh had a love, hate relationship with his Baucan companion. The love side must have been stronger because when Callum moved to the states his Bauchan came before him & cleared his plot of land for him.) ==Art/Fiction== * ''Callum Mohr Macintosh of Loch Treig'', in ''Lochaber had a Bauchan as a companion''. *''Popular Tales of the West Highlands (vol.
