Interesting. That castle is a short distance from me.
Apparently your 'grip fast' motto came from a Hungarian nobleman (called Bartolf) who came to Scotland in 1067. It is said that Bartolf helped the queen across a dangerous river on a horse and that Bartolf told her to "grip fast", which is where the chief's motto comes from. Just as well he didn't say anything else!
Interesting link here for the castle. Use links to right to view various comments about the build. Pictures are from 2007.
Good luck with the engine. The Yammie units are bullet-proof if we'll maintained, easy to service and tune.
