  • Notes 
    • Tradition: Bruces farm at Bower, Caithness. I cannot locate Bower, but there are Bowertower and Bowermadden just north of Loch Watten.
      This is reasonable since the original settlement by Bruces in Caithness was in that area. It seems they then moved to the Latheron area [Munsery, Braehungay], and later back north to Watten.

      In 1745 Walter Bruce was nursed back to health by ??? Gunn of Cattaig. I cannot locate Cattaig.
      It seems he later married her and lived at Dalnachar, on Strathbeg, near Cattaig. I cannot locate any of those names on modern maps - this does not mean much since many names have disappeared. [1]
