    Finished Wilson's Tales of the Borders and of Scotland Volume 3 and decided to take a left turn and read Thomas Aquinas' Summa Theologica instead. I'm finding I need to read a lot more classical philosophy (Plato, Socrates, Maimonides, etc.) in order to really understand some of the arguments and counter-arguments, but I'm going to push on though.

    Just finished The Traditional Boyers Bible, vol 1 and just started The Highland Clearances by John Prebble. I am on page 14, so still early.

    Cormack, McIntosh, Gow, Finlayson, Farquar, Waters, Swanson, Ross, Oag, Gilbert, Munro, Turnbough,
    McElroy, McCoy, Mackay, Henderson, Ivester, Castles, Copeland, MacQueen, McCumber, Matheson, Burns,
    Wilson, Campbell, Bartlett, Munro - a few of the ancestral names, mainly from the North-east of Scotland

    I just ordered a two volume set by Ronald Black, "The Campbells of the Arc." Could be an enjoyable epic.

    And so now that they are in hand: The Campbells of the Ark, Men of Argyll in 1745, Volume 1: The Inner Circle.

    I wanted to know what life was like for my family in Scotland during this time, and these volumes should provide invaluable insight. Lots of gaelic already in the preface along with the English translation, so this should also prove interesting with my current quest to learn gaelic.
