This book was published in  1843 by W.P. Kennedy of Edinburgh. Collated by James Findlay, it consists of an alphabetical list of villages and seats, with their relevant ‘Post-Town’, with ‘SUB-OFFICES .. in Italics‘, County and Occupants.

And, like many directories of this type, there’s the same information arranged by surname, and some lovely period adverts.

It’s a nice snapshot in time for a particular area.

Directory to gentlemen’s seats, villages &c. in Scotland: giving the counties in which they are situated – the post-towns to which each is attached – and the name of the resident (1843)
