Famhair Stane

The Famhair Stane stands on the west coast of Galloway, near the border with Carrick. The magi of the Academica Septima Superior were told how to find it by the head of the faerie Clan MacArawn, as payment for delivering its wedding gift to Devorguilla of Galloway and Baron de Balliol.

The Mac Arawn also related the legend of the stane to the magi.

Long, long ago, before the great flood, this island was ruled by giants called the famhair. They lived, warred and loved as men do now. They studied great magics, and their monuments may still be found if one has the eye to look for them. When the cruel flood came, their kingdoms were broken, for the famhair that remained were mighty, but few.

Before long, men came to Britain. The magicians who were the wisest of the famhair knew that they could not stand before the tide of tiny, but oh so numerous, foes. One of them took himself far away to gaze in the waters and see the future of the kings of men. Such a great spell could not be cast elsewhere but in the great western ocean, wherein lost Atlantis lies.

What he saw we may not know, for he stands there still, turned to stone by his long, lonely scrying. Even so, he watches the waters, and sees in them the future of the kingdoms of short-lived men.
