    ... to have armies. He got rid of many of the people living on his land during the Highland Clearances and converted to sheep farming. Those who he needed for the new industry were treated well. We walked through various rooms open to the public. Many of the rooms had a blend of the old and new. Most of the portraits were of the entire lineage up to the current 7th Duke of Sutherland.

    So off we went in Alastair's rather slow minibus, being passed by angry motorists, and trundled slowly through the twilight, Alastair talking nineteen to the dozen the whole way, to Wick.

    ... we can still see the field but everything surrounding it has disappeared. We wonder if we will find our way back to the tent? The schedule is running late. It's 4pm, supposed to be the 'tossing the caber' event. We'd both like to see it but we're now beginning to get quite cold and we can hear thunder claps.
