Product Description


It presents the story of Colintraive and Glendaruel from the end of the last Ice Age to the present day. Not only based on meticulous reserach of local and national records, which reveal a rich and unexpected wealth of detail, local historian Bridget Paterson's book is also informed by an intimated knowledge of the land, which she has gained by examining its geology and archaeology, getting to know its people and listening to the stories and legends. On one level this is a local history which shows the enormous contribution of individuals to the shaping of the history of the place. On another it is also very much a national history, as it examines the role the area has played in the wider context of Scotland's story. This book is a wonderful companion to Colintraive and Glendaruel; it is packed with fascinating detail and will appear to all those with a passion for this unique and inspiring corner of Scotland.
