Title - Chuir nighean lus a' mhungain fo a crios gus faighinn cuidht...
Contributors - Flora Boyd
Reporters - Morag MacLeod; Peter R. Cooke

Summary - A girl put a plant called lus a' mhungain under her belt to get rid of a supernatural man who met her every night.

A girl milked the cows on the hill and every night a man would be waiting for her. Her parents were worried because she was always late home. She told another girl about the man and was advised to put the plant, lus a' mhungain, under her belt. That would stop the man from coming near her. She did this and got rid of him.

The contributor heard the story from her mother.
