This very comprehensive work on the history of the Scottish Highlands was based on the text of Dr James Browne's popular work published some 30 years earlier. Compiled in 1875 and edited by John S. Keltie, this work presents in two volumes a detailed view of the general history of the highlands, a history of the highland clans and a history of the highland regiments.
