Highland Strathspey & Reel Society, booklet, cover

Strathspey and Reel Societies have been a common feature of the traditional music scene in Scotland since the formation of the first society in Edinburgh in 1881. The Highland branch was formed in 1903. One of its founder members, Alexander Grant (also known as 'Battan') was leader of the society right up until his death in 1942, a period of almost forty years.

This small booklet was presented by the society to one of the founders, Andrew MacIntosh, Esq., of H.M. Customs, 'as a memento of his retirement from Service' [and] 'as a mark of appreciation of his patriotism as Originator of the Society'. The cover shows a photograph of Mr. MacIntosh with his collie dog by his side
