    Tales by the Pete Fire:

    Pete fires for years have been a central feature in many island homes. They provide not only warmth and comfort but also an important social focal point for sharing stories and tales that would be passed down from generation to generation. ‘Tales by the peat fire’ is comprised of text describing mythical creatures from island folklore. ‘Trows’, ‘Hogboons’, ‘Dwarfs’. ‘Fairy folk’, ‘Giants’, ‘Witches’ and ‘Selkies’ merge in the smoke and fire with tales of Viking conquest and old more ancient island peoples.
