Prophecies and Predictions of the Brahan Seer
The Brahan Seer, Kenneth Mackenzie (Coinneach Odhar in Gaelic ) was born in Scotland at the beginning of the 17th century. He lived in the 17th century, worked as a laborer on the Brahan estate, and is attributed with foretelling many local events. His primary tool was a round blue stone with a hole in the center, through which he would stare. His predictions dealt almost exclusively with the local areas of Scotland with which his cognizant self was most familiar.
This prediction was fulfilled when deaf and dumb Francis Humberston Mackenzie, inherited the title in 1783. He had four children who died prematurely and the line ended.
