The Long Glen
From an old copy of the Highland Magazine


PREFATORY NOTE

THE sketches which are to follow under this title were written a considerable while ago by a Highlander, who, during a period of convalescence from a troublesome rather than a dangerous illness in England, called up the recollections of his youth, and attempted to describe as faithfully as he could the life, customs, and history of an old glen community, just before it was inundated by the waves of modern changes. Reality is only thinly veiled by fictional characters, and the slight permeating thread of story developed itself spontaneously. As it was thought the period described was then too near, the sketches when finished were left unpublished; but some years ago portions of them, translated into Gaelic, appeared in the Northern Chronicle, and seemed to be so much appreciated that the author feels now encouraged to give the whole original manuscript, without material alterations.
