7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By B. R. A. Gulien on 2 Jun. 2009
Format: Paperback
This was written in a interesting timeframe, before the Jacobites got restless.
It's not a Lonely Planet, but written in the style of the 17th century.
Nowadays we journey by modern ferry, but this trip is more like an expedition.
A early insight in the cultural and religious believes of the Western Isles people, after the demise of the Lord of the Isles.
BTW, The Lord of the Isles by David Caldwell would be a perfect companion to this book.
