|More Morven & Maiden Pap|
winding road from Dunbeath will bring you to the scattered houses of
Braemore. It is surrounded by hills and overlooked by Maiden Pap.
These pictures Taken near the site where it is thought Loch More Castle
may have been. The
History of Caithness by J T Calder mentions a castle
built by Sir Reginald de Cheyne. It is supposed to have been where
the River Thurso flows from Loch More. The legend of the time
suggests Sir Richard had invented a contraption to trap salmon as they
emerged from the loch to the river. A bell is supposed to have
rung in the castle when a fish was trapped. Fresh fish on
tap. No wonder they were so healthy in Caithness back then.
