The Chief of Clan Sinclair, The Right Honorable The Earl of Caithness PC,
visited Toronto in 2004 as the Guest of Honour at the St Andrew's Ball
on Saturday, November 27th. The following evening, he dropped in to The Free
Times Café, and on Monday he was feted at a belated birthday celebration
/ pot luck at 133 Major Street, the home of CSAC President Rory Sinclair.
Here are the photos we have so far received for the website:

The Chief at the Free Times Café
The day after Toronto's St Andrew's Ball, the Sinclair Clan Chief
visited Toronto's Free Times Café
where CSAC President Rory Sinclair's Celt-pop band was playing. Electric Scotland
webmaster Alastair McIntyre, now a resident of Canada, also dropped by and
took some photos
of the event, including this one of Clan Sinclair USA's Mary Selver chatting
with Lord Caithness.

Pictured (L-R): the Chief, Malcolm Caithness; the CSAC President,
Rory Sinclair; CSAC Vice President for Central Ontario, Glen Sinclair; and
CSAC member Margaret Near. The party was a pot luck - following established
tradition, Glen brought the haggis!
The portrait over Rory's shoulder is of his grandfather, Major Alec Sinclair
of the 48th Highlanders - Boer War, WW I and WW II (training only).
As the Chief's Piper, Rory had played in Rosslyn Chapel for
of the Earl of Caithness earlier that month.
His own portrait, right, was nearing completion at the time
of the chief's birthday celebration.
