Gaelic and Norse in the Landscape - Place names in Caithness and Sutherland - A Ghàidhlig is Lochlannais air Aghaidh na Tìre - Ainmean-àite ann an Gallaibh, Cataibh is Dùthaich MhicAoidh

The place names of Caithness and Sutherland were coined, to a very large extent, by speakers of two languages which dominated this part of the world for centuries - Gaelic and Old Norse.  This booklet is written in the hope that people throughout Caithness, Sutherland and beyond will be stimulated to engage with all the languages that are a fundamental part of their heritage.
