Welcome to Dùn Sgàthan,
Shadows, the home of Shadow of the Hooded Crow War Goddess Project.
The real Dùn Sgàthan is the home of Saigh Lambert and Aaron Miller in a northern New England wilderness.
We are a couple of Gaelic
Heathen warrior-types sharing our lives with our Greyhounds and Border Collie crosses, horses and
goats; we are working on developing a homestead raising chickens
as well as produce.
In the Shadow of
the Hooded Crow, Running with Mad Hounds is Saigh's main project here, a sort
of virtual shrine to the Gaelic War Goddesses, especially Badb, Macha
and the Morrígan and focused on the Outlaw Warrior path. Prayers, links and the Shadow of the Hooded Crow Blog which is updated a bit more regularly.
Our Gaelic Heathen
Path section gives some additional general information on our syncretic
reconstructionist cultural path focused on Scottish Highland Gaelic
culture and the Norse influences to it.
The Beasts of Dùn Sgàthan now have a Facebook page
the virtual kennel where you can meet our Divinely Mad
Border Collie crosses Gleann and Sachairi and Greyhound Gráinne and the
late great Irony, Bran, Scolaighe, Cù Mór and Òrlaith. They, of
course, do expect to be visited. Why would you be
than to see
them? There is also some writing on why to adopt a Greyhound, Celtic
Sighthounds and dogs in ritual. We also now have a cat, Meadhran, but
he doesn't care if you visit or not as he does not like
strangers. *UPDATED with our newest hound Gráinne*
On the Shieling
is our section on our horses, where you can meet Saorsa our PMU foal
(now grown) and Misty our Morgan/QH mare as well as our Minis, Cimmeron
and Iceman, and goat, Elína; as well as our missed Minis Topper and
Willow and goat Randvér.
You can also read about our beloved rescued horse Saoradh (sadly lost
in March of '07 just
over a month from his 33rd birthday), and hear about his journey from
starvation to health and from emotional cripple to a happy riding
partner through Natural Horsemanship. Articles on Celtic horses and PMU
well as a page for Saigh's past horses too.For the homesteading part of
things, please see our blog as it's just easier to update there Dùn Sgàthan
Homestead blog, to try to keep more updated. Some of our earliest
chicken raising can be found on this page,
Early Writings of
Saigh Kym Lambert
(sometimes under the name Kym ní Dhoireann)
are in this section, including the "woad" and "Pict" articles (both
need updating), there may be new things linked here soon that are
a bit beyond blogging. New writing can be found at our home blog here
but also at Shadow of the Hooded Crow Blog for more warrior path inspired material.
Saigh also runs The Sarah Connor Charm School for
feminist fans of Linda Hamilton's character in Terminator and Terminator
Sgàthan Books is
our online booklist and reviews section where you can look
for titles on the Celts, the Picts, warrior path, martial arts,
fitness. Again, newer reviews will likely be on one of our blogs,
depending on the type of book.
Please do enjoy your stay. Please note that
we do welcome feedback
and please remember if you have a question we prefer you ask us
instead of putting it out to people who do not know us.
We are striving to live our
lives in accordance to the old ways, without dismissing modern life.
The spiritual is in all things and our Pagan paths are echoed in the
most "mundane" aspects of our lives. We feel where ever one lives,
country or city, we can all walk our paths 24 hours a day, in all the
things we do. Being back in the country means changing some of
the daily ways we walked our path; and due to changes in our lives, not
always changes back to how we used to. We would greatly
appreciate hearing from other homesteading Pagans out there, especially
those raising livestock.
If you wish to contact us, you can find our address here.
