Cave of the Raits and other Stories
Today saw the filming of the Cave of the Raits, on location at the Souterrain at Lynchat and the Croft House at the Highland Folk Museum. It tells the story of the McNivens who built a cottage over the souterrain which was used as a hideout as they carried out a series of daring cattle raids on the MacPhersons. Our storyteller for this story is Alasdair Taylor. So what happened to these cattle rustlers? Were they caught? Were they punished? Well you will have to watch the film to find out their fate. The Cave of the Raits is one of 6 short films being made telling stories old and new, fact and legend. We even feature a story about a Norwegian Princess! How is she linked to the Cairngorms you may ask, well, let us tell you her story.
