The great venomous serpent (beithir-nimh in Scottish Gaelic) often appeared on Summer nights during lightning strikes. The closest thing to a Western dragon in Scottish mythology, beithir began life as dead serpents. If a snake were beheaded and the head weren’t separated from the body by enough distance, the halves would come back together. As the sun set, a beithir would be born.
Like most creatures in Highlands lore, the creature only served to kill the unwary traveller. While unable to breathe fire, the beithir possessed a venomous stinger and typically hunted among the caves and crags along the Highlands. According to legend, any person stung by a beithir must race the serpent to the nearest body of water. If the victim won, their life was spared. Should the beithir win, the victim would die.
Due to the nature of the soft cotton material, shirt measurements may vary up to one inch.
Material: 100% combed and ring-spun cotton, pre-shrunk for accurate fitting
