Scottish sport of all kinds by an enthusiast. "I have determined to keep my hands clear of the extermination of any [species]. The marten, the wild-cat, the kite, and eagle, are not banished from ...Sonachan and Barbea ...and though this whimsical forbearance may subject me to the charge of having sunk the sportsman in the "amateur naturalist," it is an accusation to which I can cheerfully plead "Guilty". Volume one has deer-stalking; deer-driving; wild goats; roe-hunting; seal-shooting; capercailzie, grouse and black-game and ptarmigan shooting; mountain hares; woodcock and snipe, wildfowl on coast and loch; gundogs; and natural history of Bute. Volume two has much on the natural history of the Highlands and of sport; and on angling for salmon, salmo ferox, trout and sea-fish.
