Continued...
There are many sites around the Highlands with connection to Duthac i.e. Loch Duich in Wester Ross, Kilduthie, Arduthie near Stonehaven in Aberdeenshire.
There can be only 3 schools of thought as to our origin ;
1 . Duthacs' servant was a Pictish convert like himself
2 , he was a Norse convert from Caithness/Sutherland.
3 ,or he came from Ireland (Celt)with the Saints body in circa 1250.
We can rule out connection with Duffy's as there name has a different meaning all togther and does not feature in Scotland till the 19th century .
I suppose the only way that we could clear this up is by a number of us getting DNA matching done and see which People we have the closest match to.
Hope this clears up a lot of miscoceptions that are flying about
St Duthac's Day is March 8th.
