For those with an interest in the Scottish Highlands, here's one for you. This contains five separate books relating to the history of the Highlands of Scotland:

  1. The Feuds of the Clans: Highland Families in Conflict, 1301-1619. By Alexander MacGregor. First published in 1764, Feuds is a clan-by-clan, glen-by-glen recounting of the conflicts which so characterize the great age of the Highland clans.
  2. A History of the Highlands, 1746-1822. By Bernard Kelly. The years after the battle of Culloden Moor were difficult ones indeed for the Highlands and Islands. This is a history of the changes which took place, of the people whom they affected, and of the age-old customs which they destroyed.
  3. The Household of the Great Highland Chiefs. This booklet provides a list, with descriptions, of the principal officers, servants, or attendants in the households of the great Highland chiefs, primarily in the 15th-17th centuries.
  4. The Manners, Customs and History of the Highlanders of Scotland. By Sir Walter Scott. Scott surveyed the Highlands at a time when the old way of life was rapidly disappearing. His history tells of a world gone by but still within living memory.
  5. Notes by a Highland Chief in 1784. In 1784, Sir Æneas Mackintosh of Mackintosh had just returned home to Moy after a stint in the army in America, and over a period of 7 weeks, he made notes about his estates in Lochaber.
