Description: The Muilearteach, also known as the "Sea Mither" or "Storm Mother", is a mythical creature from Scottish folklore that is said to reside in the depths of the ocean.
According to legend, the Muilearteach appears as a giant, hag-like woman with wild, tangled hair and a long, flowing gown made of seaweed and shells. Her skin is said to be a pale, sickly green color, and her eyes are described as glowing with an eerie light that can be seen from a great distance in the darkness of the stormy sea.
As the "Sea Mither," the Muilearteach is believed to have the power to control the elements of the ocean, and is said to be able to summon up great storms and rough seas. She is also said to have the ability to heal sick or injured sailors and to guide lost ships safely to shore.
Despite her fearsome appearance and reputation, the Muilearteach is often seen as a protector and guardian of those who make their living on the sea, and is respected and revered by many in Scottish coastal communities.
