Scope and Contents

Manuscript diary from October 1843 to June 1844, kept by Eugenia Campbell, wife of Robert Campbell, 10th laird of Skipness. Written in a sometimes difficult hand, the 146 pages open with news of a fire at a neighbour's house which left three garrets and the roof charred but most of the entries are concerned with more pedestrian news of family and friends.
