"CAWDOR, par. and vil.-- par., partly in Inverness-shire but chiefly in Nairnshire, 29,366 ac., pop. 1070; vil., in co. and 5½ miles SW. of Nairn; P.O. Adjacent is Cawdor Castle (1454), seat of the Earl of Cawdor, a fine specimen of the true baronial castle of feudal times. The legend that King Duncan was murdered here is wholly without historical foundation."
Extract from John Bartholomew's Gazetteer of the British Isles, (1887)
