PAGES: paperback, 240 pp


Colla Ciotach MacDonald was a mighty hero in the XVII century Gaelic world, but his stature has been eroded by the passage of time. This work makes use of both contemporary and traditional sources to put his life in context; it also seeks to vindicate the reputation of his son, Alasdair MacCholla, whose military genius in the evacuation of Kintyre has been deliberately denied. The book has useful maps and appendices, including the diary of Rev. Weir, a Covenanter held hostage in Mingary Castle.

"Considering the controversial and complicated nature of these wars Kevin Byrne has done a meticulous job in presenting the facts calmly and in a scholarly fashion." - West Highland Free Press.
