stoorworm

Scottish - A huge water-monster with venomous. Breath. Assipattle killed this monster, after thirty-six great warriors had failed. The stoorworm swallowed him when he went out in his little boat to fight it, so he cut open its liver and and pushed in burning peats which he had brought with him. The dead body became Iceland and the monster's teeth fell out to form the Orkney Islands. In some lore, occasionally called stoorworm.
