Excerpt from A Tour in the Highlands in 1803: A Series of Letters by James Hogg, the Ettrick Shepherd, Addressed to Sir Walter Scott, Bart I got a deal of information as we passed along from the Rev. Mr. Somerville of Stirling, who was a passenger in the coach, and seemed a very Specious, intelligent man. He showed me the Earl of Stair's very extensive plan of the battle of Dettingen, and entertained me with many curious remarks respecting the ancient harbour and town of Camella, the capital of the Picts, situated beyond Linlithgow, as also the most minute and just description of the battles of Falkirk and Bannockburn, all of which I have written in my journal, and as they are much better described elsewhere than I am capable of doing, I entirely decline it, though I wish from my heart that the distinctions of Englishmen and Scot were entirely disannulled and sunk in that of Britons. I will tell you a story which was told by one in the coach. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
