Place:


Cawdor  Nairnshire

 

In 1887, John Bartholomew's Gazetteer of the British Isles described Cawdor like this:

Cawdor, par. and vil.-- par., partly in Inverness-shire but chiefly in Nairnshire, 29,366 ac., pop. 1070; vil., in co. and 5½ miles SW. of Nairn; P.O. Adjacent is Cawdor Castle (1454), seat of the Earl of Cawdor, a fine specimen of the true baronial castle of feudal times. The legend that King Duncan was murdered here is wholly without historical foundation.
