Executive in charge of the Highland Village
(An Clachan) as part of the Scottish Exhibition of National History, Art,
and Industry, have arranged the publication of this book with a view to
providing visitors to the Clachan with concise and accurate information
concerning home-life in the Highlands of Scotland before the Rising under
Prince Charles Edward Stuart. It is hoped that the volume will also have a
wide circulation among Highlanders who are unable to visit the Exhibition.
The provision of so comprehensive a work, at a popular price, has
only been rendered possible by the
generosity of the contributors, each of whom has supplied his article
gratuitously. To them, and to Mr. David N. Mackay for undertaking the
complete management of the publication and supplying an adequate index,
the Executive now express their sincere gratitude.
