Old Photograph Scaraben Hills Lybster Sotland


Old photograph of the Scaraben Hills behind Lybster, Caithness, Scotland. Scaraben is a long ridge almost three miles long with three rounded quartzite summits. There are excellent views of the Caithness coastline. The Sinclairs of Lybster have long roots running back to the Sinclair earls who ruled Caithness that was once a much larger area taking in much of Sutherland. Tracing further back the family has connections to the Norwegian earls who controlled the north of Scotland for centuries.
