Some Scottish agriculture links for family historians

Alastair McIntyre has released two new items of interest on his Electric Scotland website this week that might be of interest to those researching Scottish agricultural labourers and farmers.

The first is a Report on the Agriculture of Perthshire, part of an account from a volume of the Highland Agricultural Society of Scotland printed in 1869. It can be viewed at www.electricscotland.com/agriculture/pagea2.htm . For the equivalent story in other parishes visit www.electricscotland.com/agriculture/index.htm

The second is a Report on the Dietaries of Scotch Agricultural Labourers from the same year at www.electricscotland.com/agriculture/pagea1.htm .
