Here is an interesting and somewhat unusual article from a blog I follow called History Links Dornoch, which details the local history of Dornoch, Scotland. I’ve never reblogged anything from this blog before, but I was intrigued by this local “travelogue” approach of examining historic farms in the Dornoch area, with roots stretching back 200 years or more. I became interested in Dornoch because it was the home of a man named George Mackenzie, whose bizarre treatise on weather written in 1817 is a key part of my academic research. I featured Mackenzie’s Dornoch-area farm in a post a long time ago. It’s worth delving into the history of the area, and this blog does it well. Take a look!
