Please look through the pictures on the following pages, they provide a view of the castles that have not been previously published. The castles stand proudly on the very edge of the rocks overlooking the North Sea and the distant islands of Orkney. The ancient seat of the Earls of Caithness was finished in 1495 by William, the 2nd Earl. In 1609, the 4th Earl extended the site by building a more luxurious castle adjoining Girnigoe. This was called Sinclair Castle.
