Harold’s TowerWhile stravaiging around the net and looking around Caithness I found this “wee” curiosity There was a chapel at the Hill of Clairdon on the site of which Harold’s Tower was built by Sir John Sinclair of Ulbster before 1780 to mark the spot where Earl Harold (the younger) is supposed to have been killed and buried at the Battle of Clardon Hill in 1196, this looks almost “mosque” like don’t you think? It is actually a Mausoleum for the Sinclairs
