Caithness County

Caithness County is a county in the north east of Scotland, bounded on the north by the Pentland Firth; on the east and south east by North Sea; and on the west and south west by the county of Sutherland … [It] is about 43 miles in length, and thirty miles in breadth; comprising an area of 618 square miles … On account of its remote situation, Caithness had little intercourse with the principle parts of the country, and consequently is connected with few historical events of importance, except occasional hostilities with the Danes and Norwegians. From “A Topographical Dictionary of Scotland”, 1951
