A serpent-like leech in Scotland on the western isles. It has nine eyes on its head and is attracted by the scent of horses. It would attack those travelling by the side of a river by grappling on to the legs of the horse and dragging both rider and mount underwater to be devoured at the Burach Bhadi’s leisure.
