The '''Tarbh Uisge''' ( "water-bull" in Gaelic) is a spectral water-bull in Scottish mythology. ==Description== The Tarbh Uisge is described as a black animal, with a velvety, soft appearance, and no ears at all. Only coming out at night, it is said to make a sound which has been compared to the crowing of a rooster. When local farmers hear that sound they know that this means the Tarbh-Uisge has come to graze in the fields. ==Place== The Tarbh Uisge is found only in tiny, isolated pools, which are wedged deep in the mountainous Highland regions of Scotland. ==Behavior== *Unlike the [[Each uisge]] or even the notorious [[Kelpie]], the Tarbh uisge is not prone to assail those unlucky enough to encounter it. In fact, it generally refuses to interfere, even when trespassers come into its habitat. *In Scotland, a calf born with what the Gaelic referred to as "carechluasach," or knife-ears (which is to say "short" ears) is considered to be the offspring of a Tarbh-Uisge. ==See also== * [[Each uisge]] * [[Each uisce]] * [[Backahasten]] * [[aughisky]] * [[ceffyl dwfr]] * [[Cabyll-Ushtey]] [[Category:Scottish mythology]] [[Category:Fairy animals]] Return to Tarbh uisge.
