Trow are a type of goblin found in the folklore of the Shetland and Orkney Isles - they are also similiar to the Norse trolls but tend to be shy and extremely small, however they are also known to be troublesome and only able to appear during the hours of the night.

Trows would enter people's homes and cause mischief or play tricks and pranks but were also known to go as far as kidnapping humans - especially musicians, due to their legendary love of music.

Although Trows are considered a dangerous and mischievious fairy they are not entirely without merit and when caught in a good mood they are said to teach humans magic as well as fiddle tunes.
