In March 2007, Field Archaeology Specialists (FAS) excavated a further trench in the North Range of Castle Sinclair Girnigoe in Wick, Caithness. This intervention was part of a continuing series of seasonal work that had been carried out at the site since 2002. Intervention 27 saw the excavation of rubble deposits within the North Range. The layout of the range was elucidated and architectural features within the rooms were defined. Three rooms were included in this: the south western room known as G5, the central room known as G6 and the north eastern room known as G7. A range of architectural features were recorded including windows, doorways, hearths, fireplaces and staircases. <1>
