Photograph of 2009: A Sinclair Odyssey - You Can Get Involved

A Sinclair Odyssey combines arts and archaeology to tell the stories of the Sinclair Clan of Caithness.

With a glittering Street Parade and an opportunity to step back in time at The Gathering, Odyssey will explore the themes of Ancestry and Homecoming in the county of Caithness.

With many activities planned for the coming months there will be a chance for everyone to be involved and make their contribution to Homecoming Scotland 2009!
