Under HISTORY is the article "Origins of the Sinclairs in Scotland" written by our Chief, Lord Caithness.
His message to us reads:
Last year George Sinclair in Canada started to revise the literature about the clan which was displayed at the Highland Games and on our websites. He sought my thoughts and it was to be my winter project but became my summer one! I now attach what I have written. It is not in the format of the Games literature but I hope it will help you update what you have.
