Mermaid Sighting 1947
In 1947 on the Island of Muck, in the Highland Region of Scotland, 80-year-old fisherman, Alexander Gunn, reports seeing a real mermaid. ‘in the sea about 20 yards from the shore, sitting combing her hair on a floating herring box used to preserve live lobsters. Unfortunately, as soon as the mermaid looked round, she realized that she had been seen, and plunged into the sea’.
