Ousdale  Caithness


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

Ausdale, a hamlet and a burn in Latheron parish, Caithness. The hamlet lies on the burn, at the N base of the Hill of Ord, 4 miles SW of Berriedale. The burn runs south-eastward, at a course of only about 3 miles, and leaps over a cliff of about 100 feet in depth into the sea.
