205 year old Highland journal published

A journal written 205 years ago by an Inverness school rector is being published for the first time. Written by Alexander Nimmo, a native of Fife, the book includes his time on the Commission for Highland Roads and Bridges, and his travels across the country during the heights of the Clearances. The book will be launched at an event in Inverness on 8 June hosted by the new University of the Highlands and Islands.
