"There is a legend that the Kerrs were frequently left-handed and even constructed the spiral staircases in their castles so that they could take advantage over right-handed swordsmen. The term "Corrie-fisted" or left-handed is said to derive from this. But there is little in history to support the legend - the story is likely to have derived from the Gaelic "caerr" meaning "left"." Source: rampantscotland.com
