Castles of Caithness

See www.caithness.org for this article, Olwick and Berridale Castles
The history of the two castles are joined in this article giving the low-
down on the Cheynes, Sutherlands of Duffus and the Oliphants.  And did you
know the Norsemen seem to have treated Wick as the Riviera, spending the
winter here according to the earlier Sagas. Wow!! We Wikings ar tuf.
There is also information that links several families including the
Sutherlands, Dunbars, Cheynes, and Oliphants to Hempriggs House. A heads up
to Iain Laird and Mark Anderson.
