Tha a' chuibhreann chlaistinneach seo o 'Account of a Sail from Wick to Aberdeen', a bha am broinn 'Miscellaneous Papers' aig Sir Iain Mac na Ceàrdaich o Ulbastair, foillsichte an toiseach mu 1819. Rinn Sir Iain na pàipearan air diofar chùis an latha, air an tarraing ri chèile a reir na h-ùidhe a bh' aige annta agus cuideachd gus a thoirt seachad beagan tàimh o chuid de na h-obraichean nas tomadaich aige. Chuir e a-mach leth-bhreacan do a chàirdean agus do a luchd-eòlais.

'When we were out of the shelter of Wick Bay, the swell became very great, and being across our line of sailing, the vessel rolled so much, that I soon enriched the Moray Firth, with a large proportion of a very excellent dinner, a friend at Wick had provided, to enable me to bear the fatigues of the voyage. I now found it necessary to repair to the cabin, which turned out to be of the humblest description, in size only about six feet by eight. On each side, there were places called 'cabin or box beds', but so close, so short, and so dirty, that I resolved to try some other expedient for getting sleep, and accordingly, got the chests in the cabin arranged close to each other, some bedding put over them, and with the assistance of some excellent blankets, (which a friend at Wick, who foresaw how useful they would be, had put on board), contrived to make as comfortable a couch, as could be expected in such a vessel.

After a sleep of some hours, I awoke, and inquired if we were near Peterhead or Aberdeen. 'No!' (answered the captain), 'we are only half way across the Moray Firth; it became a dead calm about ten o'clock, and has continued so for these eight hours,' (it was then about six o'clock). 'But,' (he added),'a breeze is rising to the eastward, which is much in our favour.' As I had taken nothing for some time, he proposed breakfast. I had some sea stores with me, as cold meat, wine, and spirits, but had forgot a more material article, tea. I would recommend it therefore, to any person who may be induced to take a similar excursion, not to neglect having some tea, sugar, and a bottle of milk or cream, among the other stores he carries with him.'

B' e uachdaran, fear-poilitigs, leasaichear tràth, tuathanach, àireamhair agus tosgaire dha dhùthaich a bh' ann an Sir Iain Mac na Ceàrdaich, Fear Ulbastair, (1754-1835). Rugadh e ann an Caisteal Inbhir Theòrsa do mheur de dh' Iarlan Mac na Ceàrdaich Ghallaibh, agus chaidh e air adhart gu oilthighean Dhùn Èideann agus Àth na Damh, mus do leigeadh a-steach e gu Dàimh an Luchd-tagraidh. Chaidh a thaghadh mar Bhall-Pàrlamaid Ghallaibh ann an 1780, agus bha e ann an Taigh nan Cumantan cha mhòr gun bhriseadh gu 1811.

B' e Sir Iain a' chiad cheann-suidhe air Bòrd an Àiteachais, agus stèidhich e comann gus clòimh Bhreatannach a leasachadh. Ann an 1805, shuidhicheadh e na choimiseanair air drochaidean agus rathaidean a thogail ann an ceann a tuath Alba. Stiùir e cuideachd co-chruinneachadh a' chiad Chunntas Àireamhail an Alba (1791-1799).
