Product Description

Details

In spite of the floods caused by modern day global warming it is a fact that the greatest floods ever to have hit the North of Scotland occurred in August 1829. Heavy rains deluged the lands from Wick to the Grampian Mountains. A combination of drought, followed by freak weather conditions caused the rivers especially in Moray, Banffshire and Inverness-shire to rise to levels never experienced before or since.

Sir Thomas Dick Lauder's account meticulously records the events leading up to the storm and the disasters caused by the flood. Using many local sources of information, he paints a picture of a community fighting to save their belongings and rescue their livestock. For many it was a matter of life or death. The beautifully drawn etchings and maps record just how immense the floods were and how terrifying it must have been to have lived through them.
