This evening, my theme is Castle Sinclair Girnigoe, near Wick in N.E. Scotland. The castle has close connections with Clan Sinclair. The building is currently undergoing a combine archaeological research programme and stabilisation/restoration which is aimed to provide more information on the history of the castle and secure the structure for future generations.

Today we visited St Andrews where the British Open was in progress, then to Edinburgh to visit the famous castle and finally to Rosslyn Chapel which dates from the 15th century when it was founded by the Sinclair family.
