Major General David Stewart of Garth was the author of a pioneering history of the Highland regiments, 'Sketches of the Character, Manner and Present State of the Highlands of Scotland' (1822). The work has been reprinted in facsimile and is still consulted. As a result of his writing, Garth was pivotal in instilling the concept of the romantic Highland figure in the consciousness of the British public.
