Stratheden

Image taken from 'Chronicles of Stratheden' by 'A Resident' (Rev. Colin MacDonald) and shows the scene of a Highland parish sheltered below the mountains on the right of the illustration.

The aim of the book was to sketch a picture of a Highland parish of the time (1880s). The descriptions and stories show the changes within the community as well as the older characteristics which have been retained. An early example given is the fact that before the coming of the trains it took 4 days to make a journey to Glasgow or Edinburgh.

All the names in the book are fictitious but based on real people who, after recognising themselves and their neighbours, were so incensed it is said that they burned an effigy of Rev MacDonald!
