The Heather and the Gale
Clan Donald and Clan Campbell During the Wars of MontroseBook - 1997
After the forfeiture of the Lordship of the Isles, the Clan Donald and the Clan Campbell emerged as prominent amongst all who sought to fill the power vacuum in the West. Ronald Williams shows how their differing strategies led inexorably to that fatal confrontation, wherein Gaeldom, Catholicism and the King were eventually overwhelmed by Calvinism and bloody revolution. The author sets the stage and then, drawing upon personal research, sweeps through the saga of Montrose's campaign. There are detailed topographical references throughout.
