It was a bright cold night. The lights sparkled on the water and from somewhere came the sound of a fiddle. Someone started to dance and it wasn’t long before the Ceilidh was in full swing. Plates of the finest local fayre were being served, interrupted only by calls for another dram. Outside, the loch lay silent, dark and deep.
