Porcelain -THE SOUND OF SHIANT
The Minch. Siant Isles/Lewis.
The Minch is a fast moving stretch of water between Lewis and the mainland.
Within this lies the three Siant Isles.
The Minch is inhabited by the Blue men of the Minch, sea spirits who lurk beneath the waters of the Minch in order to lure stricken seamen to their deaths.
According to Adam Nicholson’s book “Sea Room” - their beguiling chant goes:
“Ickle Ockle Blue Bockle,
Fishes in the sea,
If you’re looking for a lover,
Please choose me”
