Sinclair Mausoleum and Ulbster Burial Ground
Sinclair Mausoleum and Ulbster Burial Ground, taken 6 years ago
The mausoleum is apparently built on the site of the earlier medieval St Martin's Chapel. The mausoleum itself appears to be in a reasonable state of repair although the graveyard surrounding it is in a somewhat poorer state although it is gradually being tidied up. The most recent burial, a Sinclair, appears to be 1974.

A sign on the entrance to the graveyard dated June 2010 says:

Ulbster Burial Ground: The Tannach & District Community Council members are trying to make safer and improve access to the memorials in this burial ground.
As you can see we are at last making an impression on the grass and weeds. Unfortunately this exposes the diggings of rabbits and bones are scattered widely as, due to the rocky nature of the ground, many of the graves are very shallow. We hope that you understand that this will take some time to clear up and we are not being disrespectful by leaving it at present. Several stones have been covered by undergrowth over the years and we hope to clear those and raise fallen stones where it is safe to do so.
