Gog

With Magog and The Heilanman, forms the Fraser Peaks

Kakakura…..   The red underwing of the kaka. Perhaps referring to the way this impressive granite dome glows in the rising and setting sun. 


 

Gog ……Gog & Magog are variously demons from the old Testament, guardians of the City of London, and from Scots Mythology.
