My family are from Shetland and my mother was a Loutit, but when they moved to London, they changed the spelling to Lutitt

So we have three spellings of the old surname: Louttit, Loutit & Lutitt
Lamb's ORKNEY SURNAMES includes only the first of these - initially recorded in the 15th century.

(Many of us would no doubt have been tempted to change the 2nd syllable in the name. Bravo to your family for hanging on to it!)

This is interesting.
James Thomas Smith Groundwater is my second cousin three times removed. He was born 21 Mar 1881 at Roadside, Clestrain, Orphir, and died 29 Jun 1948 at Viewfield, Clestrain, Orphir.
