Moidart

Among the Clanranalds
by Charles MacDonald - Find out more about the author

When Charles MacDonald wrote this history of the great family of the Clanranalds from Moidart, he was able not only to draw on the works of professional historians, but on living local tradition and his own observations from over quarter of a century. With an instinct for a good anecdote, an eye for detail and a warm and gentle humour, he produced a minor classic.

This modern edition has notes of explanation, a guide to the places, people and families mentioned in the text, contemporary illustrations, maps and a family tree.

The Reverend Charles MacDonald was a former Priest of Moidart and resident of The Old Chapel House and his classic account of the social history of Moidart and the Macdonalds of Clanranald in 1889. Dr John Watts was educated at the universities of Oxford and Glasgow. He is a Fellow of the Scottish Antiquaries of Scotland and a member of the Scottish Catholic Heritage Commission.
