Highland Seer, Coinneach Odhar, had only to look through the hole in his stone to see into the future. He saw a chariot with no horses breathing fire and charging through the countryside long before trains were invented. He saw the deer and other wild animals exterminated with 'horrid brown rain'. He saw giant grey geese - we would call them aeroplanes - flying over Inverness.
All went well until he saw what the husband of Lady Seaforth was doing in Paris - and told her!
