Clan SUTHERLAND (6775 words)
William, seventeenth Earl of Sutherland, contributed greatly to the suppression of the rebellion in the north.
William, second Earl of Sutherland, was the hero who overthrew a large force of invading Danes at the battle of Embo in 1259, himself slaying their leader with the leg of a horse, a circumstance commemorated in the name of Dornoch—a horse’s hoof, and by the Earl’s Cross which still stands on the spot.
Sutherland, it is said, was further persuaded by a witch’s prophecy that his head should be the highest that ever was of the Sutherlands.
