Filte! Welcome to Dn Sgthan, Fortress of Shadows, well the virtual side of it as that's the name of our real life home as well.  And welcome also to our new URL, please do update your links or bookmarks as we may not keep the old one.  Things have also finally been updated a bit and moved around, so if you get Crow copyright 2001 Kym Lambertlost just come back here and hopefully you'll find your way.

We are  a couple of Gaelic Heathen warrior-types, Saigh Kym Lambert and Aaron Miller, returned to a country life with our Greyhounds and Border Collie crosses, horses and goats; we are working on developing a homestead raising chickens as well as produce. The real Dn Sgthan is in Northern New Hampshire,  including forest land, swamp and some pasture including an old apple orchard.

For the homesteading part of things, please see our blog as it's just easier to update there Dn Sgthan Homestead blog, to try to keep more updated.  Some of our earliest chicken raising can be found on this page, however.

Our Gaelic Heathen Path section is an index of information on our development of this path, a syncretic reconstructionist cultural path focused on Scottish Highland Gaelic culture and the Norse influences to it.

In the Shadow of the Hooded Crow, Running with Mad Hounds is a new section, a sort of virtual shrine to the Gaelic War Goddesses, especially Badb, Macha and the Morrgan.  Prayers, links and the Shadow of the Hooded Crow Blog

Coin Geilt!  is the virtual kennel where you can meet our Divinely Mad Greyhounds the late great Irony, Bran, Scolaighe and.C Mr. The great pups still with us are our Border Collie Crosses  Gleann, and Sachairi and  Greyhound rlaith. They, of course, do expect this. Why would you be here Hound based on Rossie Priory stone copyright  2002 Aaron Miller for Cruithne Designsother than to see them? There is also some writing on why to adopt a Greyhound, Celtic Sighthounds and dogs in ritual. We also now have a cat, Meadhran.  *UPDATED with our loss of rlaith*

On the Shieling is our section on our horses, where you can meet Saorsa our PMU foal (now grown) and Misty our Morgan/QH mare as well as our Minis and goat. You can also read about our beloved rescued horse Saoradh (sadly lost in March of '07 just over a month from his 33rd birthday), and hear about his journey from starvation to health and from emotional cripple to a happy riding partner through Natural Horsemanship. Articles on Celtic horses and PMU asInverurie horse --drawing copyright  2002 Aaron Miller for Cruithne Designs well as a page for Kym's past horses too.

Early Writings of Saigh Kym Lambert (sometimes under the name n Dhoireann) are in this section, there may be new things linked here soon that are a bit beyond blogging. New writing can be found at our home blog here but also at Shadow of the Hooded Crow Blog for more warrior path inspired material. 

Saigh also runs The Sarah Connor Charm School for physical feminist fans of Linda Hamilton's character in Terminator and Terminator 2.

Sgthan Books is our online booklist and reviews section where you can look for titles on the Celts, the Picts, warrior path, martial arts, fitness. Again, newer reviews will likely be on one of our blogs, depending on the type of book.

Please do enjoy your stay. Please note that while we do welcome feedback and please remember if you have a question we prefer you ask us instead of putting it out to people who do not know us.  We have a Facebook page if you want discuss Gaelic Heathenry in general and a blog for this site if you want to discuss us in particular.

We are striving to live our lives in accordance to the old ways, without dismissing modern life. The spiritual is in all things and our Pagan paths are echoed in the most "mundane" aspects of our lives. We feel where ever one lives, country or city, we can all walk our paths 24 hours a day, in all the things we do.  Being back in the country means changing some of the daily ways we walked our path; and due to changes in our lives, not always changes back to how we used to.  We would greatly appreciate hearing from other homesteading Pagans out there, especially those raising livestock.

If you wish to contact us, you can find our address here.
