Bower

"BOWER, a parish in the county of Caithness, Scotland, 10 miles to the N.W. of Wick. It is situated on the coast of the North Sea, near Dunnet Head. The surface is irregular, and partly under cultivation. Its highest point is at Heather Cow Cairn, from which there is a good prospect. There are two small lochs. The living, worth £191, is in the presbytery of Caithness, in the patronage of Sir James Colquhoun, Bart. There is also a Free church. Stone Lude, or Lutt, about 8 feet high, stands on a hill, and is considered a Scandinavian relic. Several cairns exist in the neighbourhood."
