Come to Granny

"Granny - the cailliach mor - the 'great old woman' is the story teller in chief in the Scottish household, and of winter evenings she has her whole family for audience, including the delighted and frightened children shuddering at her ghost stories as they lie in their truckle-bed.

In the day-time when Daddy ploughs and Minnie spins, the children are Granny's plague, and care and joy and here we see her enticing the youngest-born to take his first few wavering steps in life."
