 Clan Gunn - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Often, it is claimed that the knight is Sir James Gunn, who reportedly traveled with Sinclair.
Unlike many highland clans, the Gunns did not rise behind the standard of the Stuarts during the Jacobite rebellions, and indeed fought on the side of the government in the conflict of 1745.
The clan's origins stretch over the sea to Norway, and they claim descent from the legendary Sweyn Asleifsson, the so-called 'Ultimate Viking', the progenitor of the clan, and through his grandson Gunni, considered to be the "namefather" of Clan Gunn.

 Rollo the Viking
The Sinclairs of Caithness are thus a Highland Clan just as much as the Sutherlands, Gunns and Macleods are Highland Clans; but they are not Celts to the same extent.
William Sinclair, second Earl of Caithness and progenitor of the Sinclairs of Caithness, was also the son a Celtic mother.
Before a Sinclair, a Macleod or a Gunn talks about his Scandinavian origins, it would be wise for him to calculate with some degree of care to what extent his blood is Scandinavian blood.

 Clan SINCLAIR
SINCLAIR: The name derives from Saint-Clair-sur-Elle in Normandy, from where their ancestors came to Scotland and were granted the lands of Herdmanston in East Lothian in 1162, and later, in another line, the Barony of Roslin, near Edinburgh, in 1280.
Sinclair of Keiss, as heir-male, contested the claim and, with 'official approval', mounted an armed invasion of Caithness.
The enterprise was short-lived, most of the natives of the islands remained loyal to James V., and, led by James Sinclair, the governor, they put to sea, and in a naval battle defeated and slew the Earl with 500 of his followers, making prisoners of the rest.
