Lessons by Loch Ness written by Anne Fraser ,   is a study of the three hundred year history of schools on the south side of Loch Ness. This book traces the story behind educational provision in the area from its earliest beginnings through to modern day. It examines influences that shaped progression of the educational agenda and demonstrates how establishment of schools was inextricably linked with the role of local landowners and influence of the Church.But above all, this is a study of people. Detailed research has been carried out to trace those individuals who taught at each of the schools in the area.   This research has been done from a genealogical perspective, which is inevitable, given the author’s background.

Anne Fraser was brought up in Scaniport where her ancestors lived from the 1820s. Anne was educated at Aldourie School and Inverness Royal Academy before subsequently qualifying as a genealogist through Dundee University. She is employed as Family Historian by High Life Highland where her role includes research and compilation of Family Trees for members of the public.

The book will be available to purchase locally for £12.50 at  Camerons Tea shop at Foyers , Whitebridge Hotel  and the Archive Centre,  Inverness.   There is also a website associated with the book  http://lessonsbylochness.com/
