The Highlander (1873-1882)
The Highlander, published in Inverness between 1873 and 1881, is said to have focused on land reform and the Gaelic language, but it is also likely to have featured socialist ideas as the editor was "one of the founders of the Scottish Labour Party". As such it is likely to be of interest not just to Gaelic Scholars and Celticists but also to historians interested in socialism and the experience of the working class, be they from Scotland or other parts of the UK, or scholars more generally researching politics during the 1870s and early 1880s. The Highlander was also one of the few newspapers featuring a Gaelic column.
According to a blog post from the Centre for Scottish and Celtic Studies at the University of Glasgow, the editor John Murdoch "was a vocal advocate of land reform, an anti-Imperialist, a Scottish nationalist, and one of the founders of the Scottish Labour Party. Despite his penchant for Highland dress, he was not a ‘romantic primitivist’. He sought to give voice to the exploited and the working class, especially in the Highlands of Scotland."
