The Conflict of Ruaig-Shansaid
The year of god 1437, Neil Wasse Mackay, after his release out of the
Bass, entered Caithness with all hostility, and spoiled all that country.
He skirmished with some of the inhabitants of that province at a place
called Sanset, where he overthrew them with slaughter on either side.
This conflict was called Ruaig-hanset, that is the Chase at Sanset.
Shortly thereafter Neil Wasse died.
