Welcome

‘Lessons by Loch Ness’ is a study of the three hundred year history of schools on the south side of Loch Ness. This book traces the story behind educational provision in the area from its earliest beginnings through to modern day. It examines influences that shaped progression of the educational agenda and demonstrates how establishment of schools was inextricably linked with the role of local landowners and influence of the Church.

But above all, this is a study of people. Detailed research has been carried out to trace those individuals who taught at each of the schools in the area. This research has been done from a genealogical perspective, which is inevitable, given the author’s background.
