Barbara's father was chief of the Mackays, a powerful Highland clan on Scotland's north coast. Unless they eloped, her husband John must have been a man of some substance.

Barbara's mother Christian Sinclair was a descendant of the lords of the misty isles, the Sinclair Earls of Orkney. These were the same Sinclair Lords of Roslin who built Rosslyn Castle and Rosslyn Chapel near Edinburgh.

Barbara's birthplace of Strathnaver is a region 70 miles north of Inverness.
