Sinigoe is on the edge of Brough village on the road to Dunnet Head lighthouse. It was home to George Shearer, the last full time lobster fisherman working from Brough Harbour. There magnifient views from Sinigoe, overlooking the harbour and across the Pentland Firth to Orkney. Sadly, George died a few years ago. Sinigoe and Upper Sinigoe are also landmarks we look for when fishing in the Pentland Firth, launching also launching from Brough Harbour. We often drift from Langipoe to Sinigoe, sometimes with a good haul of cod, other times, nothing!
This paper packet is one of Robert Dicks's paper wrappers - the baker and botanist of Thurso 1811-1866. Dunnet Head was one of his favourite places to walk. The paper wrappers are in Caithness Horizons Museum, Thurso. The Robert Dick area of the museum is being given a new look, as since the museum re-opened a few years ago, a lot more information about Robert Dick and his pressed herbarium had been discovered
