  • Post mortem: how come there were no reports from the builders of the lighthouse that there was something eerie in the island? They could have encountered the sprites one day. Also, the guy who was paid £8 could have known something.

  • I live in Scotland and my family and me normally visit Isle of Lewis for holidays, and I've got to tell you the waves at the ocean and especially the shore can get violent. Plus Scotland has a lot of rocky cliffs and we have a serious problem with alchohol. So chances are, they might've gotten swept off while messing around drunk.

  • I am curious about the local legends, if the grass really was special it must have some old myth that explains that. Not that the myth would be true but would mean that a pattern was assimilated by the culture and we could look at the rest to make a rational explanation. Immediately it reminds me of the myth of the Brasil Island (Hy Brasil) in the south of ireland that had dragons and stuff like that, the name Brasil come from "red like an ember" and appeared in maps from 1375 to 1865. Wikipedia talks about a group of Islands in that mythology and this could be part of that group also! Wikipedia: "is a phantom island said to lie in the Atlantic Ocean[3] west of Ireland. Irish myths described it as cloaked in mist except for one day every seven years, when it becomes visible but still cannot be reached" (...) "Morogh O'Ley (Murrough Ó Laoí), who imagines he was personally on O'Brasil for two days, and saw out of it the iles of Aran, Golamhead [by Lettermullen], Irrosbeghill, and other places of the west continent he was acquainted with." "In 1674 a Captain John Nisbet claimed to have seen the island when on a journey from France to Ireland, stating that the island was inhabited by large black rabbits and a magician who lived alone in a stone castle, yet the character and the story were a literary invention by Irish author Richard Head." "A Catalan chart of about 1480 labels two islands "Illa de brasil", one to the south west of Ireland (where the mythical place was supposed to be) and one south of "Illa verde" or Greenland." (flannan isles location) "In his 1867 poem "Celtic Speech," Lionel Johnson refers to it as "Holy Hy."" There is a LOT of islands with myths that are worth to compare to this story! (Like Tech Duinn: the house of the dark one) You guys should do a episode about ghost islands!

Or even worse, just straight up murder/harm them because he has the power to and no one would ever know? The guy didn't even do his job right, who's to say that isn't suspicious?
