I have read Sir Walter Scot's novel, Rob Roy, and enjoyed it also, but Tranter is far more accurate in his historic portrayal and insight, as I have said. I've read other books by Nigel Tranter and he is a very excellent writer. His writings were recommended to me by a member of Clan Gregor Society.
I don't think I am related to the Dougal Ciar Branch of Clan Gregor (Rob Roy's). With an "A" list sept name in my family of Gregg and by word of mouth the old name was McGregor, it is a good bet that I am a MacGregor, also. The proscription of the clan name caused a lot of confusion and name changing. Even Rob Roy took his mother's clan name of Campbell. I can trace family history back to the Ulster Plantations, Fermanagh, Ireland in the late 1600's and early 1700's. Anyone reading this book will learn quite a bit of Scottish history.
