The Kirkwall scroll is unquestionably Masonic and is priceless but I believe the link to the Templars is tenuous at best. Although it is possible and
perhaps even likely that some Templar Knights were received in Scotland, the majority of the Templars as well as the property seized from them were
absorbed into the Knights of Rhodes and Malta.

Well I can provide an up-date regarding the St Clair`s, we have here on this island two families of St Clair`s one of which held the top job over in
the Kirkwall chapter, sadly he passed away last year, but his house still has photo`s of the Orkney masons hanging on the wall.
