Bucholly  Caithness


In 1882-4, Frances Groome's Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland described Bucholly like this:

Bucholie, a ruined castle in Canisbay parish, Caithness, on an almost insulated high rock, a little S of Freswick Bay. It seems to have been very ancient and strong; and, according to Pennant, was inhabited in the 12th century by a Danish nobleman.
