Based on the three volumes also entitled "Clan Donald", first published between 1896 and 1904 by Rev. Drs. Archibald Macdonald of Kiltarlity and Angus Macdonald of Killearnan, "Clan Donald" covers a period of six hundred years, from the foundation of the Lordship of the Isles until 1746, when the clans ceased to exist as separate organised entities. "Clan Donald" is the history of several important clans that descend from the old Kingdom of Macdonald. Each of these clans played its part in the history of Scotland until the final disaster of Culloden. Beginning with Somerled and culminating in an overview of how the Celtic and Roman Churches were influenced by Clan Donald, this book is an all-encompassing reference book of interest not only to members of the Clan, but also to students of the Western Highlands and Isles. Illustrations of the arms of clans, photographs of the Scottish landscape and genealogical charts, maps and plans make "Clan Donald" an invaluable guide.
