Hello, everyone!


I am wondering if there's anyone who knows 'Kelpie' in Scottish Gaelic?

Kelpie is said to be a kind of water sprite dwelling at lochs or clear waters in Scottish folklore; however, this word is not a typical Scottish Gaelic word for me (which may well be wrong since I only know a little about the spelling system of Scottish Gaelic), and I would like to know what is the true word for Kelpie in the language (one may say 'each uisge', but this is actually not the equivalence of Kelpie -- each uisge is the sprite dwelling in salt waters).

Any comment is highly appreciated!
