 Bucholie Castle (formerly Lambaborg, home of the Viking pirate Sweyn Asleifsson), Freswick Bay, Caithness, ScotlandAround 1140, a fortress called Lambaborg was first built on this site by Sweyn Asleifsson the notorious Viking pirate and robber. During his career he menaced the whole Western coast of Scotland, the Isle of Mann and Ireland until finally ambushed and killed while leading a raid on Dublin.
More about Sweyn Asleifsson…
Early in the 14th century, Robert the Bruce granted Lambaborg and the lands of Freswick to the Mowat family. They remodeled the Viking stronghold into a castle and named it Bucholie after their estate in Aberdeen. Bucholie Castle remained in the Mowat family until 1661 after which it fell into disrepair.
