Re: Where is Stirkoke?

It's often strange to me the little bits of trivia that I can attach to and say "I know the answer to that one!!"  The Tarzan movie your referring to is based on the book by Edgar Rice Burroughs, in which Tarzan is referred to as Lord of Greystoke. Often referred to my my mother in law, Christle Burroughs Vaughn as "Uncle Edgar" which does rather drive me batty, Edgar is a cousin in her father's lineage.

Subject: Where is Stirkoke?

I have come across this a few times lately. References to Stirkoke as being
north of Loch Hempriggs. Colonel George Sinclair of the Kringlen Norway
battle was the natural son of Sinclair of Stirkoke. A Henry Sinclair Horne of
Stirkoke was a General in W.W.I. Eventhough it's just a movie, wasn't there a
Tarzan called the Legend of Stirkoke, where Tarzan was reunited with his
grandfather in Scotland? I can't seem to find it on my maps. Is Stirkoke an
estate or a village?
