The Lords of the Isles
AUTHOR:
Ronald Williams

PUBLISHER:
House of Lochar

ISBN 1899863176
An excellent piece of work from Ronald Williams. His thorough narrative study of the evolution of the Lords of the Isles brings understanding and graphic detail to Scottish west coast history through the Dalriadic and Viking periods. The chapter on St Columba and Aeden of Dalriada, is simply the best that I have read. An essential guide for the Scottish Dark Age explorer.
(Ronnie has apologised for his complete omission of reference to Clan Arthur in this piece, but he is currently researching Ardviragus the Celtic battle leader).
The Lords of the Isles

From the very heart of Scotland, Archie McKerracher brings a very fine collection of Perthshire history and tradition back to life. Covering stories of St. Fillan, The Cailleach and The Bodach, The Curse of the Breadalbanes, the clearing of Scotland's swamps, the world famous pistol makers of Doune, and many more, this one is a true delight for the Scottish time traveller.
(Makes me proud of my Perthshire ancestry!)
