Most of the script in the margins appears to be in the same hand as the main text and consists of additions that the author wished to insert into the document. These notes refer to dates, place names and references to other publications about the 1745-6 'expedition'. For example, it seems likely that the note Ld.G.M.Jornl is a reference to Lord George Murray's Journal and that Mcd Jorl represents Mcdonald Journal.

Marginal notes on pages 11 and 12, appear to suggest that "Dalwhinny should possibly be Dalchrainy, both have the letters "C.M." after them.

The letter "B" appears frequently in the margins of later pages and on page 30, two paragraphs of marginal text meant to be inserted in the main text end with the initial "B". The square brackets inserted on pages 43 and 44 also appear to have the initial "B" next to them.
