The Giant

A myth submitted to the site by Rui


Long time ago, in northern island, deep in forest, there was an enormous castle where the giant Finn Maccool, his wife and his lion lived.

Finn Maccool was hunting for a treasure. He finally found where the treasure is. The treasure was in Scotland. However, the treasure was kept by the giant, Benandonna who is twice as large as Finn Maccool. There was sea between northern island and Scotland. Finn couldn’t swim so he made a footstep to get to Scotland using cliff stone. When he got there he saw Benandonna throwing gold from treasure.

He tried to fight but he was too big so he ran away to home. Benandonna chased him. Maccool was hided in chest. Scottish giant nocked the door. Finn’s wife opened the door and Benandonna asked “Is maccool here?” His wife answered that he is collecting firewood for a stove. Then Scottish giant waited for him in the castle. Wife didn’t know what to do so she asked lion to eat the giant. The lion ate the giant. Phinn got the treasure and made statue of lion.
