It's also interesting to note that Iceland had a prohibition on alcohol from 1915-1989 which, along with a lack of EM pollution there during that time, probably resulted in the many sightings compared to now, not to mention their being so far away from the bad influence of the church, allowing them to keep a lot of their traditional knowledge much like the Outer Hebrides in Scotland.
The following video is more recent and another encounter with the Icelandic Elves or "Hidden People" as their are often called:
Finally, here is a reminder of Steve Alldale's story from the excellent Fairy Faith documentary, about almost having his shadow cut off by two LMs in the shadow of Schiehallion, Fairy Hill of the Caledonians:
Note how Steve now wishes he could have the encounter again but has failed to do so, probably due to his seeking it out instead of allowing it to happen.
I'll be visiting and climbing Schiehallion later this year, it's a very interesting mountain:

I also found this image on Geograph while searching for the image above, i'm sure many of you will recognise the triskelion shape and below that is a link another story from my Arran featuring the same thing, very intriguing:
As if vandals would do anything as beautiful as this!
Rock Art or Vandalism?
Interesting little bit of 'art' at the summit of Schiehallion. I have subsequently been back up the hill a couple of times, but could not find it again. It was located a few metres to the west of the summit.
Here is another triskell from the community woodland at Fairy Glen on Arran, on a rock next to another with a Celtic spiral and Norse runes, fascinating and well worth a visit:http://fora.conscioushugs.com/viewtopic.php?t=796
...her mother and father went at once to challenge this trickster, but on their arrival back at the scene, not a sign of him was to be had, save for some old starfish, some shells and some very white sand forming a TRISKELL on the ground………

Is it possible that cup and ring marked rocks and celtic spirals signify a portal stone or similar? It's about the only explanation I can come up with, them being a key code or marker.
In saying that i'm aware of another portal in Edinburgh that isn't marked and I don't think the LMs would have any requirement to mark a portal and make it stand out. Could the marks perhaps be, along the lines of the seashell triskelion, be left as a result of an LM teleporting into the other realm, the twisting of space-time leaving a mark even on solid rock?
