The Book of Ross, Sutherland and Caithness
Media: DATA CD - 1 CD (136 pages)
Author: D. MacDonald & A. Polson
Year: (c.1921) 2005
This work (actually a single publication), by two authors, covers Ross-shire, Sutherland, and Caithness, and goes through the region area by area, discussing local and family history, traditions, tales and stories, and historical personages.
By far the larger portion of the work is devoted to Ross-shire, moving from Black Isle to Dingwall, to Kyle, Kintail, Glenshiel, and ultimately down to Ben Wyvis. Today, we would say that it follows the path a traveller would take along the roads of these three counties, but it does give so much local information about events, places, and people.
