Every nation in the world has its own folklore heritage — legends, myths, fairy-tales. In such stories the wisdom of every nation is collected and embodied, although some of the nations have similar tales, especially those who are neighbors. Legend and myths employ elements of supernatural origin: magic, gods, wonderful creatures. Tales are stories that are supposed to teach the coming generations by depicting various situations and various types of behavior demonstrated by the heroes.
“Ewen Of The Little Head” is a short story from folklore and legends of Scotland about the event which occurred about three hundred years ago. Ewen Maclaine of Lochbuy was a Count which was engaged in a quarrel with a neighboring chief. He had a great desire to end this eternal feud. After a great final battle he was killed. No one knows nowadays whether it was true or false but even now his ghost is frequently seen riding the very horse on which he was mounted.
