In this workMoreThe North Highland Influence is a follow-up to The Caithness Influence published by Whittles Publishing in 2011. It contains short biographies of people who have made their mark on the world in some way and have left a lasting legacy. In this work read about the lives of men and women from not only Caithness but from Sutherland and Ross and Cromarty as well.

People from Caithness included in the book are Ann Henderson, the sculptor from Thurso, the Johnstons of Wick, a photographic dynasty who left a magnificent photographic history of Caithness, and Richard Osawald, a slave trader, as well as the Rev John Ross of Turakina, and the Father of Blenheim, James Sinclair. Among the people from Ross and Cromarty, the lives of Hugh Miller, the geologist, James Mackenzie, a notorious New Zealand outlaw, and Peter Fraser, who went on to become Prime Minister of New Zealand, are examined as well as Roderick Murchison, the famous geologist, and James Levenson Ross, a railway engineer and philanthopist.

And from Sutherland, the lives of Robert McBeath, a Victoria Cross recipient from Kinlochbervie, Donald James Ross, the golf course architect from Dornoch and Selina Sutherland, a revolutionary child welfare officer, are all portrayed, as are Norman McLeod, a church minister and pioneer, and politician James Munro. All of them were influenced by their upbringing in the North Highlands and their place in history is rightfully guaranteed.
