The term skotta is used for a certain Icelandic ghost. They are always feminine and in most cases women who for love either killed themselves or grieved themselves to death. The word skott describes the customary 18th-century women's headdress and so skotta has become the common term for these spirits, recognized by their head wear although it is turned to the rear instead of forward as with living women.
It is said that a Hítardalskotta followed Propst Sèra Þorsteinn Hjálmarsson of Hítardalur, not far north from here. It once appeared as a skeleton to the wife of the previous propst while she was preparing dinner for Propst Þorsteinn at her husband's rectory.
The apparition tried to embrace the woman as she attempted to go out through the door while carrying her bowl. But when she set eyes on the ghost, she became terrified and dropped dead while trying to run away.
