The Grugach of Scotland
There are many strange creatures in the world of fae, not all are beautiful, but still, what glitters is not always gold! Take the Grugach for example, she is very ugly but always welcome where ever she goes, as she is the guardian spirit of grazing animals in the Highlands of Scotland. The old crone protects the animals from harm and if she does enter the crofters homes to seek warmth from their fire, she will bring good luck with her. Up until the 1900's milk was still poured into hollow stones as offerings for her.
