    Martin Martin was a Scottish writer best known for his work A Description of the Western Islands of Scotland (; second edition ). This book is particularly noted for its information on the St Kilda archipelago. A native of Bealach, near Duntulm, Skye, his work has some authenticity thanks to the fact that he was raised in Gaeldom.   About Urquhart Castle. Urquhart Castle is one of those Scottish tourist attractions that seemingly everyone in the world has seen photos of. Nestled on the banks of the pitch-black waters of Loch Ness, the castle is the perfect location to whip out your camera and really capture the spirit of Scotland.. Although it’s a popular tourist destination today thanks to its beautiful and peaceful. The Black book contains details of all the Scottish Genealogy Society's holdings relating to Scottish deaths and Scottish burials. The collection is made up of the old parish death registers, lists of monumental inscriptions, some obituaries and a growing library of transcripts of Scottish death, burial and mortcloth accounts lists.
