Nineteenth-century life in the Highlands and Islands was no rural idyll. The glens and moors were home to poachers and smugglers, while the towns were often ready to explode into riot. This book goes behind the façade of romantic tartanry to reveal petty thefts and assaults, an island rocked by a triple murder, a mob besieging the jail at Dornoch, religious strife on the Black Isle, a charming thief who targeted tourist hotels, an exciseman who was hanged for forgery - and much more.
