James Hogg

‘Having been bred amongst the mountains I am always unhappy when in a flat country. Whenever the skirts of the horizon come on a level with myself I feel myself quite uneasy and have generally a headache.’

Letter of 25th July 1802 to Walter Scott, in James Hogg, Highland Tours (Hawick: Byway Books 1981)
