The Sutherland Clan were said to have Freskin the Fleming as their progenitor. From memory, aren't the Gunns neighbours of theirs? I looked up your Y-search & we're a GD of 28/67, so not remotely recent. However, I've been classified as having Beaker Folk as ancestors, and there was a Beaker hot-spot  in Flemish regions of the Netherlands & Belgium. I've recently been classified as R1b-S389 - ie L624+ in FTDNA parlance.
My research shows my surname progenitor was most likely Flemish. Gravestones of people with my surname  from the 16th C show heraldry links to Flemings, plus all the people the surname wed in the 13th C were probably Flemish. The Flemish followed the law of 'nobilitas', and were encouraged to marry their own kind.
Very conjectural, but thought I'd mention it.

on the ftdna page, look for a pattern of name that you match with, if you match with a lot of people with the same name, see what snp that they are positive for and follow that route instead of spending wasted money
