Intro: The Loch

“The deep blue waters of the Moray Firth crashed violently against the jagged shoreline below.  William Calder, second Thane of Cawdor, stood on an outcropping of rock just beyond the point where the boiling North Sea met the mouth of the River Ness.  Looking to the south, he could just make out the single-sheeted Spanish galley.  The tall ship had been in port since dawn, its crew exchanging silver pieces for wool and cod.”
