Walk the glens and hills of the highlands with Walter Marshall Macdougall, enthusiastic tourist, investigative researcher, and spirited Highlander.

After years of studying clan history and corresponding with Scottish kin, the author's dream of journeying to MacDougall Country became a reality. In Journeying in MacDougall Country, his journal notes and sketches are supplemented with maps, historical notes, and geographical information to form a unique illustrated travel guide for all who wish to explore this country and its people. "This beautifully written book should give tremendous pleasure to many." ~ Coline MacDougall of MacDougall, 30th Chief."A delight in store for many and a 'must read' for MacDougall clansfolk." ~ Morag MacDougall of MacDougall, 31st Chief.
