"About 8 miles in length, and 4 in breadth, elevated on the skirts of the Grampian mountains. It has a bleak and barren aspect; the surface is composed of hills, valleys and mountains, and possesses few spots which admit of culture; and even these spots are of a thin muirish soil, yielding an inferior quality of grain. The greater part is laid out in pasturage, neither the soil nor climate being favourable for plantations. There is a lake about a mile in diameter, which gives rise to one of the principle streams of the Melgam."
