In desperate need of some maps

I picked up this book somewhere a while ago now but finally made the effort to give it a proper read today and it's disappointing. For a start, as someone who lives in Nairn there really is very little on Nairn, despite the title. One chapter and just odd mentions before and after.

If you live in one of the communities mentioned: Nairn, Elgin, Forres, Burghead etc then the section on that community will be of interest but the complete lack of maps, which would give context to each chapter, really doesn't help making it a disappointing read overall and I ended up skip reading most of the other chapters as I had little context.

I can't help feeling there is a good book to be written on this subject, and a lot of the basic research is here, but this isn't the book.
