Patron's Message

One of the most thrilling elements of understanding our heritage is the discovery of new information and stories which force us to reappraise our perceptions of reality and myth. Investigation work on the site of Castle Sinclair Girnigoe is a good case in point. I understand that evidence recently uncovered now indicates that a castle existed on the current site at least 100 years earlier than had been thought. Such revelations contribute to a greater understanding of the social, cultural and military forces which have shaped our land, and I congratulate the Clan Sinclair Trust on its work. Having been given the great privilege and pleasure of being invited to be Patron of the Trust, I wish it enormous success as its preservation plans for this important site are progressed.
