Tylwyth Teg of Llyn Cwellyn
In 'Celtic Folklore Welsh And Manx' (1901) John Rhys mentioned a story concerning fairies that had been passed to him by two brothers who had in turn heard it from Mari Domos Siôn, who died around 1850. 'A shepherd had once lost his way in the mist on the mountain on the land of Caeau Gwynion, towards Cwellyn Lake, and got into a ring where the Tylwyth Teg* were dancing: it was only after a very hard struggle that he was able, at length, to get away from them.'
* Tylwyth Teg – A Welsh term for the 'Fair Folk' or Fairies.
