A place for real Clan Gunn history and not the traditional myths. See the website http://clangunn.weebly.com for academic Clan Gunn history and Clan Gunn genealogy which challenges the old stories. (There is no Clan Gunn - Orkney Islands / Norway origin for example.) The Clan Gunn blog at http://clangunn1.blogspot.co.uk/ is still open. I have just published a new Gunn history - h first in 50 years called 'The Gunns: History, Myths and Genealogy'.

'Clan Gunn castles' are  at best, fortalices (fortified houses) due to their size. Glensanda 'Castle' (Morvern) is classified as a Tower House by the  RCAHMS; NIgel Tranter in Volume 5  of his The Fortified House in Scotland which covers Caithness and Sutherland, views Glen Sanda as a fortalice. And the supposed 'Clan Gunn castles' are roughly the size (or smaller) of Glen Sanda... The word 'castle' has been lazily applied; its use supports a vainglorious view of Gunn history.

Ptolemy in the century has Korns / Corns living at Dunnet Head. That's so close to Gunn. And Gunn occurs over a 1000 years later. 'Clan' Gunn descent from the Orkney Islands really is a laughable idea. Orkney Islands, 1000 Years, 1st Century, Cumbria, Me On A Map, Cornwall, Wales, Scotland, Ireland

'The Gunns: History, Myths and Genealogy' - a new Gunn history book.

Here is a radical, academically based text which demolishes the myths currently masquerading as Gunn 'history'. Gunns are best thought of as the original, non-related inhabitants of northern, mainland Scotland. They do not have an Orkney Islands origin. Gunns should not be viewed as a clan as they had no founding ancestor. There was never an historic 'Clan Gunn Chief'. The first Gunn known to history was Coroner Gunn of Caithness who died around 1450. His eldest son started the MacHamish…
