Product Description

Hamish Mackenzie, former President of the Clan Mackenzie Society of Scotland and the U.K., has pieced together from original sources the hitherto untold story of how the Sutherland estate planned two acquisitions in Ross & Cromarty in 1833 – the “New Town of Tain” and the land between Tain and Tarbat Ness. We meet a number of colourful characters, many of them well known to Highland history, and some of them appear in a new light. The cast also includes assorted Mackenzies of Seaforth and Hay-Mackenzies of Cromartie and the Duke’s Mackenzie lawyer.  The book contains vivid and previously unpublished descriptions of Easter Ross in 1833 taken from documents found at Castle Leod.
