Cregeen, Eric R; Bennett, Margaret (ed) Recollections of an Argyllshire Drover and other West Highland Chronicles
Edinburgh: John Donald, 2004 First edition. Black cloth, gilt, bw plates, bibliography Pagination: v, 265. During his appointment as Glasgow University Extra-Mural Department's first resident tutor in Argyll (1954-66), Eric Cregeen pioneered groundbreaking research into the papers of the Argyll Estate and into the oral tradition of the West Highlands. Whern international scholar and philosopher Prof Ernest Gellner read Cregeen's work, he described it as exemplifying 'all the best features of both social history and anthropology'. Publishers from both sides of the Atlantic vied for exclusive rights to his work, and though Eric Cregeen wrote many important papers during these years, and later, as lecturer in the School of Scottish Studies and Edinburgh University, his death in 1983 robbed Scotland of a great scholar. This collection of papers, brought together and edited by Dr Margaret Benneett, will be welcomed by a vast range of readers, especially those who share Eric Cregeen's enthusiasm for 'approaching the history of the Highlands with a mind alert to the claims of oral tradition'. Contents: Editorial introduction; Extra-mural classes in the West Highlands; In partnership: Adult education in the county of Argyll; Recollections of an Argyllshire drover; Flailing in Argyll; The tacksmen and their successors: a study of tenurial reorganisation in Mull, Morvern and Tiree in the early eighteenth century; Oral sources for the social history of the Scottish Highlands and Islands; Oral tradition and agrarian history in the West Highlands; Donald Sinclair: oral tradition of Tiree; Donald Morrison: oral tradition of Mull; Tiree bards and their bardachd; Oral tradition and history in a Hebridean island; Tradition and change in the West Highlands of Scotland: a case study; Bibliography of Eric R Cregeen's published works.

Munro, Neil Doom Castle
Edinburgh: William Blackwood, 1935 Inveraray Edition. Blue cloth, gilt titling Pagination: vi, 314. On one level it is a Gothic tale of intrigue and romance, but at a deeper level it shows the hopelessness of the Jacobite cause in the face of the new Hanoverian order - a hopelessness symbolised by the decaying castle of the Baron of Doom compared with the fine Enlightenment castle of the Duke of Argyll in Inveraray..

Munro, Neil The Daft Days
Edinburgh: William Blackwood, 1935 Inveraray Edition. Blue cloth, gilt titling Pagination: 284. First published in 1907, the setting is a small Argyllshire town, easily identified as Inveraray. The novel centres upon a local family and the arrival of a young American niece from Chicago. Thus West Highland beliefs and values are repeatedly contrasted with those of the outside and wider world, yet the patterns and rhythms of life in the town are also seen beside those of a tiny Hebridean island. Kate, maid-of-all-work to the Dyce household, is torn between the sophistication of her new home on the mainland and her nostalgia for the gentler pace of life in her native Colonsay.<P>Light hearted and humorous in tone, this is also a subtle and serious examination of the way in which women with creative gifts were once restricted by the conventions of contemporary Scotland.. Book: spine dulled, extremities a little bumped, endpapers a little foxed, VG, Jacket: n/a (Book ref. 3091) £13.00

Murray, W H The Companion Guide to the West Highlands of Scotland, The Seaboard from Kintyre to Cape Wrath
London: Collins, 1972 Fourth edition. Terracotta cloth, gilt titling, map endpapers, numerous maps and bw photos, bibliography, index Pagination: 415. From the Mull of Kintyre with its ravens soaring over the vertical cliffs and the shores of Ireland only 12 miles away, the western seaboard of Scotland stretches northwards to Cape Wrath - under 300 miles by crow-flight, but over 2000 in outline. It is a sea- and landscape which in beauty and variety is without parallel in Europe, let alone Britain.<P>This beauty of forest, moor, mountain, loch and glen, too often leads people to tour on and on, seeing far less than they realise and failing to enjoy themselves as they should. Mr Murray will help them to choose where to go, to understand what they see, to linger and not rush blindly on. He explains the geography and geology of each region, its history - usually violent and enthralling - its vegetation and climate, its bird, mammal and fish life, its archaeology, castles and great houses. He has written surely the most expert and stimulating book on the West Highlands of modern times and one for which any visitor will be grateful. Well illustrated with maps and photographs, this is the first volume on a region of Britain to appear in this series. Contents: Loch Lomond and Arrochar; Cowal; The Island of Bute; Mid Argyll : Upper Loch Fyne; Mid Argyll : Dunadd and Loch Awe; Knapdale; Kintyre; Nether Lorn; Mid Lorn; Oban; Upper Lorn; Glen Coe; Island of Mull; Ardgour and Morvern; Ardnamurchan; Lochaber; Moidart; Arisaig and Morar; Knoydart; Glenelg; Skye; Kintail and Lochalsh; Loch Carron and Applecross; Torridon and Gairloch; Loch Broom; Assynt; Reay Forest; Cape Wrath.

Glasgow: Alex MacLaren & Sons, 1946 Second edition, altered and revised. Green cloth, gilt Pagination: xvii, 286. In the 19th century, many of the inhabitants of the highland glens were cleared out, often by forcible eviction, to make way for a more profitable tenant the Great Cheviot Sheep.
