Barriston said that Jenny claimed that she was a COTF. Jenny was a close friend of hers.
That is the evidence we have that she is a CotF. I don't think it is conclusive, but that is a matter of opinion I suppose.
The COTF that Bran meets he at first mistakes for Arya. ...
Yes, I mentioned in my post that he thinks she look like a human child from a distance. But when he sees Leaf up close, she could not be mistaken for human and that is straight from Bran's thoughts.
We get to see the Ghost of High Heart up close and she does not look like a CotF.
So the COTF must know how to glamour themselves or else someone would have noticed.
I also said she could be a CotF glamored up in my post... Still, from the way she looks, she does not look much like a CotF which was the matter I was responding to. To say that she looks like a CotF and that makes it possible that Old Nan is a CotF is not a good argument to me.
Bran was told that those who receive the gift will have red or green eyes.
Albinos also have red eyes in Martin world, seen in Ghost and Bloodraven.
The Ghost of High Heart has red eyes and Thoros told Arya that the weirwood whispers in her ears when she sleeps.
The weirwood whispers in most ears when they sleep on them, Theon, Jaime to mention other cases of weirwood dreams.
Based on that info I think she is a COTF. IDK about Old Nan though.
Based on this I think it's possible she is a glamored CotF, but I don't think it has been confirmed in any way. I didn't find the hints subtle, but maybe that is because the CotF and the faction involved with them is the one that mosts interest me.
We also have another instance of a tiny woman that looks like a girl but is much older, the waif in the House of Black and White. She was poisoned when she was young and stopped growing. She is not a CotF so we have been shown that there are other possibilities to stunted growth.
EDIT: I just remembered that High Heart was considered sacred to the COTF so it makes sense that she would want to stay there.
On the other hand the Ghost of High Heart does not seem like the most lucid and sane person, she could be a human with a gift she could not handle well. And that she thinks she is a CotF, but is not, is a possibility. The trees are sacred to more than the CotF in Westeros.
That said I think it is very possible that she it a CotF in glamor
, and said as much in my previous post.
