The Red Books of Scotland - Further information & Purchase Details

25th November 2019. I am pleased to announce the release of the final edition of the Red Book of Scotland series. As well as a number of new entries including Cunningham of Kilmaurs & Glencairn, Hay of Lochloy, Johnston of Warriston and Johnston of Jerviswood, new information brought to the fore during on-going research has allowed for significant updates to entries included in previous editions. Details of the content of each volume in the series can be viewed via the links below.

Each digital volume in the series is fully searchable in pdf format and sample content can be viewed via the links below. Hard copies bound in durable archival buckram cloth are available at a price of £90 per volume although, due to widely varying costs for P&P, should you wish to order this format please contact us first of all including your shipping address in order that we can correctly quote a price inclusive of P&P.

The current price per digital volume is £30. Concessions are available for reference libraries, societies, universities and colleges. Please contact to discuss further.

10% of each sale will be donated to Social Bite to help in their mission to "build a collaborative movement to end homelessness in Scotland." For further information on their excellent work visit their website at
