'S ann o phàirt a h-aon de bhàrdachd 'The Highlanders' le Anna Ghrannd às an Lagan a tha a' chuibhreann chlaistinneach seo. 'S ann san leabhar, 'Poems on various subjects', foillsichte leis a' Bh-ph Ghrannd an 1803 a tha an duan seo. Tha e air a leughadh an seo le Sue Skelton.

'Come, then, explore with me each winding glen,
Far from the noisy haunts of busy men;
Let us with stedfast eye attentive trace
The local habits of the Celtic race;
Renown'd even in those old heroic times,
That live in Ossian's songs, and Runic rhymes;
When ardent Valour call'd his children forth,
And Glory lighten'd through the beaming North:
Whose hardy sons that twilight age adorn,
Like the quick splendours of the Boreal morn,
Fill'd with amaze and awe the world's dread kings,
And bade their eagles stoop with flagging wings.
Come, trace with curious search what secret cause
Each native's heart with strong attraction draws,
Though wealth in happier lands her stores unlock,
To cling with fervour to his native rock:
Why lonely mountains, dark with russet heath,
And rushing streams, and narrow vales beneath;
With more delight his wand'ring eye detain,
Than Forth's rich banks, or Lothian's fertile plain:
The many-colour'd herd, his wealth and pride,
Like deer, through wastes extended, wand'ring wide:
And sportive goats, a bold aspiring flock,
High on the ridge of yon aerial rock,
More self-importance to his mind impart,
And fill with warmer joys his simple heart,
Than all the flocks the southern shepherd pens,
Or the fat herds that graze the Lincoln fens.'

Rugadh A' Bh-ph Anna Ghrannd às an Lagan mar Anna Nic a' Phiocair ann an Glaschu an 1755. 'S i an nighean aig Donnchadh Mac a' Phiocair, oifigear san arm. Chuir an teaghlach seachad ùine ann an Ameireaga a Tuath mus do thill iad a dh'Alba gu Dùn Deòrsa ann an 1773. B' ann an seo a thachair Anna ri Seumas Grannd, ministear san arm ris an rèisemaid a bha gearasdanaichte an sin. Phòs iad ann an 1779 nuair a chaidh paraiste an Lagain, a bha rin taobh, a thoirt dha fo chùram.

Nuair a bhàsaich an duin' aice ann an 1801, ghabh Anna ri sgrìobhadh gus am faigheadh i beò-shlaint dhi fhèin agus don ochdnar chloinne a bha fhathast aice (ceathrar nighean air bàsachadh nan òige). Am measg nan sgrìobhaidhean as ainmeil aice tha 'Letters from the Mountains' (1807), agus 'Memoirs of an American Lady' (1808) agus cuideachd chlo-bhuail i 'Essays on the Superstitions of the Highlanders' (1811), 's dòcha an obair as inntinnich aice. Am measg a cruinneachaidhean de bhàrdachd tha 'Poems of Various Subjects' (1803) agus 'The Highlanders and Other poems' (1808).

Mar a shoirbhich leatha san sgrìobhadh aice, bha i comasach air gluasad a Dhùn Èideann a dhèanamh agus ann an sin, fad an trithead bliadhna mu dheireadh de a beatha, fhuair i tlachd agus companachd às a cairdean litreachail, nam measg, Sir Ualtar Scott. Bhàsaich Anna Ghrannd aig 9 Manor Place, ann an Dùn Èideann an t-7mh Samhain 1838 agus chaidh a tìodhlacadh ri taobh ceathrar den chlann-nighean aice ann an cladh an Naoimh Cuthbert ann an Dùn Èideann.
