Go Back Report # 39


Ponder this example. It is not a myth, but supposedly a true story--as true, at least, as any modern claim you will read in the rest of this book. It was first documented in 1937 by Alasdair Alpin MacGregor and so owes nothing to the UFO legends that it so dearly presages. It occurred on the Island of Muck off the coast of Scotland in the year 1912.

Two boys were playing on the beach when they saw a strange boat and were approached by two small beings dressed in green. On board the boat was a small woman with a dog that was to her scale but in our terms about the size of a rat. The beings asked the boys many questions about their lives, talking to them fluently in both English and Gaelic. Then they were given some bread which had the appearance of a walnut. They ate this without question, feeling elated and at peace as they did so. The entities, who said they had to leave, tried to entice the boys to go with them, but the two declined the offer of a trip to fairyland. They were told instead to remain watching the boat until it reached a certain point far out to sea, and then they would be free to go home. The boys complied and were left with the news that other beings of this strange race would be coming in the future. Shortly afterward, their sister found the youths with glazed eyes, staring upon an empty sea, lost in a trance.
