Join us as we celebrate the release of Disney/Pixar's animated movie Brave with a look at Scotland's folklore, myths, and legends. In part one of a series, find out about the mythological creatures that inhabit Scottish lochs and rivers, including the kelpie, the selkie, and loch monsters like Nessie. We'll also look at the translations of Scottish poet James MacPherson, who gathered together fragments of Scotland's ancient folklore in the 18th century. You'll hear the Scottish Gaelic song by Julie Fowlis that's featured in trailers for Brave as well as songs from Ewan Robertson, Wolfstone, and Karan Casey.
