Argyll, Dalriada or Earra-ghaidheal, "the Coastland" or "Boundary of the Gael", is one of the most beautiful and historically significant parts of Scotland. Before the local government reorganization of 1975, Argyll was also one of Scotland's biggest counties. Bounded by Inverness-shire to the north and stretching as far south as the Mull of Kintyre, it had a coastline measuring a staggering 2220 miles and took in 90 islands, including Mull, Iona Tiree, Lismore, Jura, Islay, Gigha and Colonsay. This work covers topics ranging from prehistory to stately homes, folklore and literature, that relate to Argyll.
