About the Book
This is the classic book on the ancient customs, crafts and techniques of the Scottish Highlands. The past is evoked with a fascinating
blend of historical narrative and detail, with descriptions of the fireplaces and furniture, the creels and cas chroms which were a vital part of
everyday life in the Highland communities, but which have now become strange in the modern world of machinery and technology.
Highland Folk Ways vividly describes the many aspects and artefacts of our ancestors’ lives; the clothes, cooking utensils, weapons, food
and the implements for fishing, farming and building are all meticulously depicted and placed in historical context. The book has over 70
illustrations, and is surely the definitive resource book for everyone who wants to rediscover the lifestyle of the clansmen and crofters.
