The Highland Society of Scotland was founded in 1784 and the library was instituted in 1789.
The collection includes early books and periodicals, as well as materials chronicling the formation of a Gaelic dictionary and the founding of the Royal (Dick) Veterinary School – University of Edinburgh.
It constitutes a unique resource for historians of Scottish agriculture, veterinary education and Gaelic lexicography, as well as the history and evolution of the Society itself.
