Painting No. 136
This small but dramatic castle almost seems to have grown from the layered rock on which it stands. It was built by the Sinclair family, who later became the Earls of Caithness, in the late 15th Century. At this time it was called Girnigoe Castle. “Wicked George” Sinclair added a gatehouse and other buildings, which formed Sinclair Castle, in the early 1600s, and joined these by a drawbridge to the earlier structure. The castle was seized by Cromwell’s army in 1651 and occupied by them for the next 9 years, after which a dispute between cousins led to the ruin of the castle in 1680. It seems ironic that a family dispute could destroy something that had stood strong against the elements in such an exposed location, but the tragedy is that many families are torn apart by greed and misunderstanding. A word of forgiveness is often all that is needed to rebuild trust and harmony.
