A romantic and melodramatic love story set in the Outer Hebrides in the late eighteenth century and involving the fate of the famous Loch Arkaig treasure that disappeared in the aftermath of the 1745 Jacobite Rising.
Neil Munro's skilful characterisation and artful storytelling create a deeply sensitive parable or fable on the destrictiveness of human greed and the vengefulness of the sea.
The story is steeped in Gaelic mythology and scattered with authentic landscape and coastline details of Barra, Uist and Mingulay, scene of the novel's dreadful climax.
By the author of "Para Handy" and with an introduction by Ronald Renton.

About the Author:
Neil Munro (1863 - 1930) was a Gaelic-speaking native of Argyllshire who spent most of his working life as a journalist and writer in Glasgow. He is universally known for his humorous Para Handy Tales which first appeared as newspaper sketches and which forever associate him with the West Highlands. His more important literary work includes a series of historical novels and some outstanding short stories - indeed, it has been suggested that Munro is one of Scotland's best short story writers.
