Castle ‘Leod’ or ‘Liotr’ is a Viking name which can be traced to an uncle of the mighty Norseman Thorfinn, Jarl of Orkney and Caithness. Thorn established himself in the area in the 11th Century after the local ‘Battle of Torfness’ when King Duncan was slain and Thorfinn’s half brother, Macbeth, Mormaer of Ross and Moray, became King of Scotland.
