Ross is located in northern Scotland and is a county that has touched the national life at many important points throughout Scottish history. It has helped Scotland develop and grow into the country it is today. Therefore, this work covers more of the larger aspects of the county's history rather than minor matters such as petty Clan Skirmishes (p. vi).
