"Kerrera - Mirror of History"

AUTHOR: Hope MacDougall of MacDougall
PRICE: £7.99
PAGES: 204 pp - large format paperback with black and white illustrations and maps


The island of Kerrera has belonged to the MacDougall family since the thirteenth century and Miss Hope MacDougall has had recourse to family papers to describe the changing times. Great political events such as the invasion by King Hakon of Norway, the Wars of Montrose and the Jacobite rebellions have left their mark, but this book also tells the story of the ordinary people of the island - the farmers, the ferrymen, the millers and the schoolchildren. The history of this tiny island - just eight by three km - reflects a perfect image of centuries of life in the West Highlands.

The story of Kerrera is inextricably linked with that of neighbouring communities. It was on the main route for funeral parties going to Iona, and for cattle drovers coming from Mull. Its physical presence provides good protection, and in its shelter has arisen the thriving port of Oban.
