A strange visitor to Ardnamurchan in 1801

Between 1796 and 1802, a strange figure was to be seen wandering around the Highlands and Islands mounted on a white horse wearing a leather cap trimmed with brown fur and a tartan cloak. Her name was Mrs Murray from Kensington, London, who was collecting material for a book she called, A Companion and Useful Guide to the Beauties of Scotland.
