In the summer of 1899, on a celebrated Hebridean island, a new shop set out its wares: IONA CELTIC ART. Over the next forty seasons, Alexander and Euphemia Ritchie designed and sold a huge range of finely wrought silver jewellery. Much of their inspiration was drawn from the rich patterns of interlace, foliage and knotwork on Iona’s carved stones and crosses.

More than sixty years after the shop closed, the Ritchies’ craftwork is still widely admired. Theirs was a pioneering artistic venture, renowned in its day, which has influenced succeeding generations of silversmiths. This book tells its story. 85 Colour + 75 B&W photos.

IONA - The Living Memory of a Crofting Community

The Hebridean island of Iona has been the focus of intense outside interest for over 1,400 years, from the time of St Columba's monastry in the 6th century through to the transfer of its renowned monuments into the care of Historic Scotland in the year 2000. Yet the people who lived and worked alongside its sacred sites have been largely overshadowed - until now. This book is the first to redress the balance, taking an in-depth look at Iona's economic and social history . . . . to create a lively picture of Iona's past.

Columba's Island

For the Gaels, it is I Chaluim Chille. From here, Colum Cille - or St. Columba - and his successors spread their Christian mission throughout Scotland and beyond. An early King of Dal Riata was consecrated here, and later, the mighty Lords of the Isles brought their chieftains for burial on Iona's soil. In more recent times the island was the setting for the Iona Community, a radical experiment in church witness and worship. . .

From first hand experience, Mairi MacArthur gives an intimate account of a truly magical Isle - Today, Iona is one of Scotland's greatest Christian pilgrimage sites.

. . . Scotland has witnessed the growth of a new and curious military phenomenon. Grown men bedecked in tartan, yomping across most of the globe, hell-bent on benevolence and ritualistic bevvying. . . In what noble cause do they serve? Why football of course - at least in theory.

Taking us on an erratic world tour, McArthur gives a frighteningly funny insider's eye view of active service with the Tartan Army.
