Essays on the Superstitions of the Highlanders of Scotland
To which are added translations from the Gaelic; and letters connected with those formerly published in two volumes by Mrs Grant of Laggan (1811)

I consider this work as a kind of adjunct to those poems and letters of mine which have already met with so much indulgence from the Public. The superstitions of the highlands, and the national manners that blend with, or originate from them, are here fully delineated. In connection with the writings already mentioned, thjs work completes that picture of highland life, of which my other writings presented, casual sketches or broken features.
