Scotland Next Caithness -- Sinclair's Bay  


William Sinclair became the first Sinclair Earl of Caithness in 1455 in exchange for his holdiings in Nithsdale. Soon after there were Sinclair castles all along the North Sea coast of Caithness from Beriedale in the south to Thurso in the north. These images include Sinclair-related castles on the shores of Sinclair's Bay north of Wick.
