ND01NW 37 unlocated.
There was a castle of note on the northern shore of the modern port of Helmsdale, which is probably the castle of Sorline of Mr Collingwood's 'William the Wanderer', also called Surcrin, both words being a corrupt form, it is suggested, of Sir Illigh, the old name of the parish of Kildonan.

This may well be a reference to the broch which formerly stood at ND 0310 1526 (see ND01NW 24).
