I found your rendition of the story very enjoyable. This is a traditional story from the Island of Sanday in Orkney. It relates to the farm of Hellihow, the most northerly farmhouse in the Parish of Burness, which is the smallest of the 3 parishes in Sanday. I was born in the south end of Burness Parish. I have traced all my ancestors back to the middle of the 18th Century. My earliest known Tulloch ancestor lived at Hellihow.
