This well-researched book pulls together all the various strands that influenced the opening up and development of the North West Highlands after the disastrous risings of the early 18th century. Endorsed by royalty, the Georgian legacy represents the beginning of properly planned settlements connected by a network of communicating roads and canals in the 19th century. Although the rationale for their existence may have changed, the constant appeal of many of the new towns illustrates the enduring worth of this Georgian legacy.

'The story of the lighthouse, and of the man who built it, Alan Stevenson, is a fascinating one, and Paul A. Lynn tells that story in an informative and highly accessible way. ...a large number of excellent (and often also contemporary) maps and drawings and more recent photographs really helps bring the subject matter to life. ...a thoroughly worthwhile addition... ...takes a rounded view of two very underappreciated subjects'. Undiscovered Scotland
