by Iain Sutherland
This book is an attempt to relate the history of Caithness between 1770 and the Reform Act of 1832, which changed its parliamentary representation.
It tries to bring the history of Caithness into focus, from the beginning of the last quarter of the eighteenth century to the end of the first quarter of the nineteenth. Its contents do not fall exactly within these times but its main purpose is to overlap and carry forward the work of Captain John Henderson, the most meticulous of observers, that of James Traill Calder who cut a path for the rest of us to follow, and the writing of Sir John Sinclair.
Iain Sutherland the author was born, educated and lives in Wick.
