"Particularly fascinating in Chapter Two is the description of the aquatint process and the challenges it gave to Daniell, the delicacy of the technique required is illustrated by prints and examples of magnified detail."

"Throughout the book from start to finish the reader is made aware of the history of Caithness through Sutherland to the Moray Coast. The Picts, the Norse, the feuding clans, the '45 rebellion, the genealogies of the main families, the Clearances, the Covenanters all played a part in the country depicted by Daniell."

"He has written a very enjoyable, accessible book which covers in particular, a part of the north country often missed by those who follow the well trodden west coast tourist trail!"

Scenes of life two centuries ago are captured between the covers of a new book marking a remarkable artist's journey around the shores of the Moray Firth.

However, Invernessians will notice one big absence from the image of the Ness on the book's cover - there is no sign of a castle.
