Statistical Accounts of Scotland
The two Statistical Accounts of Scotland, covering the 1790s and the 1830s, are among the best contemporary reports of life during the agricultural and industrial revolutions in Europe. EDINA, based at Edinburgh University Data Library, offers online access to these two valuable historical resources. The reports for the Rosneath Peninsula (Roseneath parish in the country of Dumbarton) offer a fascinating insight into the area as it then. They are:
- Account of 1791-99: Parish of Roseneath - by the Rev. George Drummond
- Account of 1845 Parish of Roseneath - by Rev. Robert Story
