also spelled Ùruisg
A Scottish version of the Satyr. It has the body of a human from above and of a goat below. They have small horns on their heads and they live in the forest people. They have a strong sexual behaviour and like to get drunk often.

In Scottish folklore the Urisk was described as having the upper half of a man and the lower half of a goat. The Urisk was said to haunt pools of water and waterfalls near the Scottish Highlands. Often chronicled as being very lonely, the Urisk would seek out human companionship; however the unusual nature of his physical appearance often frightened away anyone he would try to interact with.
Like many folk legends at the time the Urisk was known to help farmers tend to their fields, they where also known to frighten humans by following them through the dark and lonely places of the world.
