The name Olrig comes from the Old Norse and means ‘son of Erik’. Back then, Caithness was called Katanes and it, as well as Orkney and Shetland, were all part of Norway. Olrig holds three cemeteries bounded by old stone walls – ancient, old and modern. On your way out, you will see an ancient stone collection container inside the gate. Olrig is said to be one of the most haunted places in Caithness. Why? Because some believe that every time you enter and leave the cemetery, bad luck will follow you.
Other local myths and legends include a Mummy on the loose, The Valkyries in the hill, The Green Lady at Olrig House, the bagpipes of the Piper skirling at all hours on Windy Ha; the lost Kirk; and of course the Tunnel! A place full of stories and mysteries!
