Who are the Lairds?

Dear Gary

We do not dispute that the main family of Lairds are from the south of 
Scotland, but our family is from Caithness and before that Norway.  We have 
no evidence of any connection with the Lairds of the south of Scotland, and 
have been in Caithness for many hundreds of years.

To answer Sinclair's question it is the current Earl who has given us 
permission to wear the Sinclair Tartans and badge.

Yours aye

Iain Laird
