I’d like to begin by welcoming our new Patrons and thanking long-time Patrons for the continuation of your support. I’ve, hopefully, earned such excellent support. Typing up your requests from the excellent ‘Gazetteer of Scotland‘ (1847) has fair kept me busy over the last couple of months. 174 articles later and I felt a break was needed – it’s not nearly so random and interesting if we spend our time on the one thing forever...

It’s been a busy couple of months since my last update. I honesty hadn’t realised it had been so long, – used to be a near daily thing. I’ll try to get the order of events as close as possible to how they occurred chronologically...

RSH Newspaper Research

The British Newspaper Archive have provided us with banners for the site - anyone subscribing to them, via RSH, will now be helping maintain the site ☺️

I go to them for most research - their search function & filters are really useful to refine your searchings - most recently I was curious about the Flannan Isle Lighthouse mystery and so they were my first port-of-call for more info 😁

I guess my first toot would have to be to let folk know the 'Treaty of Union Articles' (2019) is available in paperback & kindle versions.

telling us exactly what the issues are with the union between Scotland & England.

Information that's incredibly still so relevant today.

Getting our Corpse, Yvie, dressed and ready for Halloween - plus a sleeping ZaraKat 😺💀🧟‍♂️

I've come to the end of my list of your suggestions. So, I'm calling a day on this wee side project for just now so I can get back to other things. Thank you for the place names ☺️

Lawrence had asked for Roslin on the True History of Scotland page. It's private & I've given it up as a lost cause - therefore I'm unable to let him know it's uploaded.

Here it is

We can't be a part of a page called True History of Scotland, when the page owner is unable to see the truth of how things stand now.

The new Patreon hardbacks are in! They're beautiful, the pictures have come out excellently. Very happy 😁

One of the girls at Cameron's said she'd tried to read bits as she worked on them ☺️

Shall be sending them out soon - Patrons head to Patreon.com/RandomScottishHistory for further info.

Picture 3, showing those places with only 1 tick, are all the places I've got left to type & upload 😁 If you'd like to add to my workload with a place you feel is missing, do it 😉

Here are the 113 articles uploaded already - randomscottishhistory.com/gaze
