About Col. George Sinclair

"In Chambers's Domestic Annals (vol. i. pp. 445-6), it is stated that in the Pass Kringelen there is a tablet with the following inscription: -- 'Here lies Colonel Sinclair, who with nine hundred Scotsmen were dashed to pieces like clay-pots by three hundred Boors of Lessoe, Vaage, and Froen; Berdon Segelstadt Ringeboe was the leader of the Boors'." John Henderson, Caithness Family History (1884).
