Quick Phrase tr*nsl*t**n

Looking for the phrase "Willow's Lantern"

Willow being the tree name, lantern, just a lantern, but it's actually a reference to the full moon.

I'm guessing something like - "lòchran seileaich" ??

Thanks!!

I don't know about "full moon", but you will often hear the moon referred to as "lòchran nam bochd", lantern of the poor.

Thanks all!

The full moon / lantern in this is a reference to clan MacFarlane - as I understand it, in some parts of Scotland, the full moon is still referred to as "MacFarlane's Lantern"
