For many a spectacular skyline and magnificent scenery is their first awareness of the islands off Arisaig and Mallaig, yet their history is as central as their geographic situation to the story of the Hebrides. This is the first book ever to be written on the collective history of the little group of islands between Ardnamurchan and Skye.
