The '''Fairy Raed''' or fairy [[Wild Hunt]] is about spirits that at a certain time of the year ride through the air with [[ghost]]s, [[Fairy|fairies]] and [[witch]]es, ==Description== In Fairyland the hunt was led by [[Gwyn ap Nudd]], also know as '''The White One''', the fairy king guarding the portal on Glastonbury Tor. Original reports of the '''Fairy Raed''' however tell of a hunt led by a pagan deity, though the facts that reports were given by monks probably emphasised the demonic aspect of the riders. In Scotland the [[Sluagh]], originally part of the [[Seelie]] Court, turned in the [[Wild Hunt]] sinners who flew through skies at midnight to kidnap travelers out late at night. The [[Sluagh]], also known as the ''Fairy Host'' were said to fly West in order to catch the soul of a dying man before it was shriven. This is the reason why at the beginning of the Twentieth Century in Scotland people began to close windows and doors overlooking the west side. ==See Also== *[[Bran and Sgeolan]], Fionn Mac Cumhal’s hounds in Celtic lore; *[[Cwn Annwn]], or '''Hounds of Hell''', and [[Annwn]], their [[Underworld]]; *[[Cusith]], the fairy dog; *[[Devil's Dandy Dogs]], or '''Dando Dogs'''; *[[Gabriel Hounds]] or '''Gabble Retchets''' *[[Hounds of the Hills]]; *[[Norse Wild Hunt]]; *[[Wild Hunt]]; *[[Sluagh]] or '''Fairy Host'''; *[[Wandering Jew]] ==References== *Eason, Cassandra ''A Complete Guide To Faeries & Magical Beings'', Weiser, ISBN 1-578-63267-6 ==Links == *[http://www.monstrous.com Monstrous] *[http://www.deardeath.com/the_hunt_through_cultures_and_.htm Wild Hunt] [[Category:Fairy creatures]] [[Category:Celtic mythology]] [[Category:Norse mythology]] Return to Fairy Raed.
