The Brownie of Blednock

Today we begin a new series that will tell the story of the “Brownie of Blednock.”

A “Brownie” is a tiny, fanciful, good-natured brown elf who secretly helps at night with household chores. Blednock, the modern day spelling which is “Bladnoch,” is a town on the southern tip of Scotland. Today, Bladnoch is famous for its Bladnoch whiskey distillery and the Baldoon Castle, that some say is still haunted by the ghost of Janet Dalrymple.

Did you ever hear how a brownie came to the village of Blednock and was frightened away again?

Well, if you haven’t heard the story, let me tell it to you.
