It was reported in a newspaper dated 4th November 1899
that there once had been a house called the Highland Laddie in St Faiths.

Apparently St Faiths Fair was the centre for sales of cattle which had been reared in Scotland. `Very few cattle grazed in Norfolk were bred in the county when St. Faiths Fair was at its prime. The cattle grazed were chiefly Galloway Scots, which years ago gave way to Irish cross-breeds. The development of Norwich cattlemarket did much to close the Fair and indirectly the shutting of the Highland Laddie Inn'.
