Contributors - Capt. John Campbell Duder Harvey Webb Macpherson
Reporters - Hamish Henderson

Summary - Fragments of stories about the 'dwarfy stane', a little man with a raven on his shoulder, and knights and kings in a cave.

Capt. Macpherson recalls hearing a frightening story as a child, to do with the 'dwarfy stane', which he thinks was in Orkney. The story was about a little man sitting behind a rough table. He had a raven on his shoulder and no one could ever see his legs or feet.

Another fragment that he recalls has to do with a man entering a cave where knights and kings were sitting. They rose up and threw him out because he sounded a horn before taking a sword. If he had taken the sword first he would have led them out.
