From the Hardcover edition.
This publication has been written with a three-fold target: to
awaken curiosity, to stimulate, and to amuse.
The scenes defined were chosen mainly from
parts of Scotland that are distant, or apart, from the
ordinary thoroughfares of commute, and are for this reason much less
known than they should be. i've got attempted to provide
them as vividly as attainable, in order to wake up in others an
interest in them. If many extra guests are precipitated
to stopover at those localities, they won't be disenchanted,
and I will be happy.
Again, nobody reaps complete reap the benefits of go back and forth who does
not visit and fro with open eyes, open ears, open brain,
and open center. What a pitiful lot are lots of our
modem sight "do"-ers, who absorb not more from
nature than the attention of a calf may well do! no longer for
these do 1 write; yet for extraordinarily many — i'm hoping the bulk
after all — who lengthy to flavor the candy secrets and techniques of nature,
and via those to arrive a greater wisdom of her
great writer. i admire to imagine that God, Who has made
all that's attractive and grand, and has given to us any
sense or love of those which we own, is Himself the
prime Admirer of the various surroundings of His global. My
aim has been that those pages should still feed the affection of
nature, and stimulate the learn of her works with that
all-round " openness " which i've got recommended above.
As for the incidents and tales scattered right here and
there, they've been inserted just to curiosity and
amuse. no longer even a wild Highland panorama is ideal
without its little curl of smoke in a nook to indicate
some relation among nature and mankind. hence are
one or risk free adventures and short sketches of
character thrown in to play the a part of the sunshine blue
pennant from the shepherd's cottage. I make daring to
claim that those incidents and anecdotes, with one or
two trifling exceptions, are new and clean, within the feel
that they're in simple terms recognized to very constrained circles, and
have by no means, as far as i'm conscious, seemed in print.
If those "Scenes and tales" turn out appropriate to
the public, the writer has fabric sufficient to shape the
basis of one other, sequence, nonetheless drawn from his local
CHAPTER I. Loch Duich, Ross-shire
CHAPTER eleven. The Black Rock, Ross-shire
CHAPTER III. The Island of Lewis
CHAPTER IV. Assynt in Sutherland
CHAPTER V. The Caithness Coast
CHAPTER VI. town of Thurso
CHAPTER VIL The Shetland Islands
The substance of the subsequent discourse used to be in recent years learn at a night assembly of the Royal establishment in London, and so much of it was once afterwards introduced within the type of lectures to my classification at Liverpool. it's now released within the wish that it could actually name awareness to a ignored part of superstition and stimulate enquiry into the early heritage of these nice associations which nonetheless shape the framework of contemporary society. If it may prove that those associations have occasionally been outfitted on rotten foundations, it might be rash to finish that they need to all come down. guy is a really curious animal, and the extra we all know of his behavior the extra curious does he look. He could be the most obvious of the beasts, yet definitely he's the main absurd. Even the saturnine wit of speedy, unaided by means of a data of savages, fell a long way in need of the truth in his try and set human folly in a robust mild. but the peculiar factor is that during spite, or even by way of advantage, of his absurdities guy strikes progressively upwards ; the extra we research of his previous heritage the extra groundless does the previous idea of his degeneracy end up to be. From fake premises he usually arrives at sound conclusions : from a chimerical thought he deduces a salutary perform. This discourse may have served an invaluable goal if it illustrates a few
of the ways that folly mysteriously deviates into knowledge, and solid comes out of evil. it's a mere cartoon of an unlimited topic. no matter if I shall ever fill in those bald outlines with finer strokes and deeper shadows needs to be left to the long run to figure out. The fabrics for the sort of photo exist in abundance ; and if the colors are darkish, they're but illuminated, as i've got attempted during this essay to indicate, by means of a ray of comfort and hope.
