The Skree Of Culloden

3 posts in this topic

On the eve of a battle that changed Scotland's history, a bizarre incident was a horrifying omen of the slaughter to follow. On 15th April 1746 at Culloden Moor in the highlads, British troops prepared to engage the army of Charles Edward, the Stuart prince who sought the recover the British throne.

At the Scottish camp that night the air was suddenly filled with spine-chilling screams, and the troops saw a monstrous, harpy-like apparition hovering overhead. It resembled a great bird with leathery bat-like wings, burning red eyes - and the head of a man. Llater dubbed the skree, the creature seems to have been more tha just a pre-battle hallucination.

A reliable eyewitness was Lord George Murray, a general renowned for his level-headedness. The horrensous apparition eventually departed and was never seen again. The next day's battle brought disaster for the Scots.
