These stories paint a picture of a Scotland in the 1600s and 1700s in which might and ruthlessness abounded. There are accounts of smugglers, thieves and outlaws hanged by the neck and then hung in a cage as a warning to others. The first and longest chapter details the 150-year period during which the Clan Mackintosh posessed the property of Borlum, from 1610 to 1760. The second chapter concerns Simon Fraser, Lord Lovat, who lived from about 1676 until his beheading in 1747. Chapter 3 concerns Lord President Forbes, who sailed into Inverness in "the largest vessel that ever entered the river." Subsequent chapters describe Sir George Mackenzie of Rosbaugh, The Family of Chisholm, The Mackenzies of Redcastle, The Black Watch (or 42nd Royal Highlanders), Donald Gruimach, The Black Isle Cattle-Lifter, and Highland Robbers and Cattle Lifters. The addenda contains more narratives. This book is a collection of stories rich in the flavor of times past, told in the language of Scotland past.
