Originally published 1937, this 368 page book (which also includes maps) is one of the most important research tools for either the genealogist or the student of Scottish history. This classic geographical gazetteer of Scotland from the 1930s, lists literally thousands of towns, villages, parishes, rivers, mountains, and other sites throughout Scotland, including mansions and ruins as well.
There is an especially useful glossary of the most common Gaelic or Celtic and Norse place-names, together with the Gaelic names for many of the towns, villages, and districts in Scotland. Since Scotland is one of the few places on earth where the place-names actually mean something and help to describe the locality, this can be quite important to you in your research.
So, from Abbey and Abbotsford to Ythsie and Zetland, here is a splendid addition to your reference 'shelf'!
