Off the Chain
Notes and Essays from the West Highlands By “Gowrie” (W. A. Smith) (1868)
The following notes were written out at the time of my visit, and express the exact feelings with which the various districts mentioned impressed me; they ought thus to be more trustworthy than if viewed through a veil of memory, however slight. Dealing with scenes and subjects somewhat out of the usual track, I hope to have drawn some little information and amusement therefrom, for the benefit of kindred lovers of nature, and at any rate to have succeeded in securing for these parts some of that superabundant attention at present lavished upon the remainder of the “Land of brown heath and shaggy wood.”
