In addition to its striking scenery, St Cyrus is also steeped in history – and on a rocky outcrop just beyond the village lie the ruins of Kaim of Mathers Castle, where 15th century ‘cannibal’ laird James Barclay is said to have pushed the local sheriff into a cauldron, before making him into soup.
