In Blackmore’s King Arthur, an island in the Orkneys where Arthur was driven ashore by a storm raised by Satan.

Satan met him there and led him through several challenges, making him fight a number of fearsome monsters, among them a dragon. Arthur survived the trials with the assistance of the angel Gabriel.
