Description - Islay by David Caldwell

This book covers the history of Islay up to the present day with a particular focus on the people of the island. Islay was originally part of Dal Riata, the early kingdom of the Scots, but was then colonised by Scandinavian settlers in the middle of the ninth century. It also looks at the lesser folk, especially during the time of the Campbell lairds, from the early 17th century onwards.
