the forfeiture of the Lordship of the Isles, these two mighty
families emerged as prominent amongst all who sought to fill the
power vacuum in the West. The author shows how their differing
strategies led inexorably to that fatal confrontation, wherein
Gaeldom, Catholicism and the King were eventually overwhelmed

sweeps through the saga of Montrose's campaign with a vigour and
passion that is as infectious as it is stimulating. The detailed
topographical references will be of special value to those who
seek to retrace the physical course of events.
