The great venomous serpent (beithir-nimh in Scottish Gaelic) was the closest thing to a Western dragon to be found in Scottish mythology. While unable to breathe fire, the beithir possessed a venomous stinger and was typically found in the caves and crags along the Highlands. According to legend, any person stung by a beithir must race the serpent to the nearest body of water. If the victim won, their life was spared. Should the beithir win, the victim would die.
