PORTRAITS ILLUSTRATIVE OF THE PRINZIPAL CLANS AND FOLLOWINGS AND THE RETAINERS OF THE ROYAL HOUSEHOLD AT BALMORAL, IN THE REIGN OF HER MAJESTY, BY KENNETH MACLEAY, ESQ., R.S.A.
THE following Portraits and Notices are intended as slight of the Highlanders of Scotland, in the rain of HER MAJESTY QUEEN VICTORIA.
Highlanders of the present day differ in many respects from their ancestors of the last century; but the ties of blood an clanship, the influence of local associations, and the comparative inaccessibility of the districts, have hitherto preserved most of their leading characteristics. In another century, it is probable that these will be, in a great measure, lost. Railroads, with their facilities for transporting natives of the glens, to the cities of the plains, and citizens, to remote regions of the Highlands, must, in time, blend more and more the Gael with the Lowlander. Now that the “Land of the Heather” is familiar to all, when Britain is proud of her Highland Regiments,- when so many of her Southern sons migrate annually, to seek health and recreation in the north, some record of the People of the Highlands, as they now are, may claim a national interest, and prove useful to the future historian.
The Retainers belonging to the Queen`s Highland Estate of Balmoral, and Clansmen of the principal families, form the subjects selected to illustrate the Race.
The fixedness of the abode of Highlanders among their own people and their own districts, apart from any intercourse with strangers, has enabled them, habitually, to trace back family descent farther than is elsewhere customary, except with the accompaniments of wealth and station. The present advantages of registration may, in the future, enable others of our countrymen to do the same. The feeling of holding a stake in the past, has its own value, and its influence over the Future, often bearing fruit in such sentiments as Thought poor, our parents and grandparents were honest; *” Our forefathers were fearless, loyal, and true, let us nerve disgrace them.” May the many many noble qualities and simple virtues thus inherited, us never disgrace them.” May the many noble qualities and simple virtues thus inherited, with the kindly feeling still subsisting between Chief and Clansmen, and the mutual trust uniting all Highlanders in brotherhood, long survive, whatever changes time may bring!
