Fin-folk

The Fin-Men and Fin-Wives whose offspring were the mermaids and mermen who were all bent on securing human spouses. Mermaids would lure young men to their city of Finfolkaheem, beneath the sea. The old folk told of the summer home of the Fin-folk at Eynhallow, Orkney’s sacred isle which was said to vanish at certain times. Fin-folk could only be got rid of by throwing a silver coin into the sea.
