Scottish Highlanders on the Eve of the Great Migration, 1725-1775: The People of the Grampian Highlands; by David Dobson; Published: 2008; Paperback; x + 123 pp.; ISBN: 9780806353845; Item: CF9016
The Grampian Highlands stretch from the Braes of Angus in the south, north-eastwards following a geological fault line known as the Highland Line to Aberdeenshire, then west as far as Strathspey. The region embraces the mountainous areas of Angus, Kincardineshire, Aberdeenshire, Banffshire, and Morayshire but does not include the fertile coastal plain nor Strathmore. While the present volume is not a comprehensive directory of all of the Grampian Highlanders, it does pull together references on 1,500 18th-century inhabitants from that region.
In all cases, Mr. Dobson gives each Highlander's name, a locality within the Grampian Highlands(place of birth, residence, employment, etc.), a date, and the source. In some cases, we also learn the identities of relatives, the individual's employment, vessel traveled on, and so forth.
