Notes

A scarce volume by the Arbroath-born journalist and poet David Carey (1782-1824). The title poem is named after a hill just west of Inverness, and is accompanied by substantial footnotes on matters of antiquarian and topographical interest. It also incorporates the story of Macbeth in the first part, with quotations from Shakespeare, though the footnotes criticise the unfaithful depiction of the story on the stage.
