Loch Coruisk (in Gaelic, Coire Uisg, the "Cauldron of Waters") is an inland fresh-water lake, lying at the foot of the Black Cuillin in the Isle of Skye. The Kelpie is a supernatural water horse from Celtic folklore that is believed to haunt the rivers and lochs of Scotland and Ireland. The name may be from the Gaelic cailpeach or colpach meaning heifer or colt.
