A photograph of Thurso Castle, circa 1905.

The first Thurso Castle was built in 1660. A new castle was built nearby in the 19th century by Sir John George Tollemache Sinclair, 3rd Baronet. The castle was the seat of the Sinclairs of Ulbster. It was built in the style of a French chateau close to the shore on the east of the river mouth. During World War II a sea mine exploded nearby and the castle became structurally unsafe
