Synopsis

In this book, the castles of Hebridean myth and story are brought to life in a scholarly yet easy-to-read text. Roger Miket explores the history and architecture of the settings associated with blood-curdling dramas such as the murderous goings-on at Dun Sgaith or the far-fetched yarns of Saucy Mary and Cu Chulainn. Many of the castles are shown in reconstruction and all the architectural descriptions are fully illustrated making them clear to both expert and amateur historians. Together with the earlier broachs and duns, the castles are the principal material survivals of the great pageant of Hebridean history.

Roger Miket is an archaeologist and historian. He was Museums Officer for Skye & Lochalsh for over 16 years and he has also worked as a part-time lecturer in Adult Education for Aberdeen University. He is a co-founder with Cailean Maclean of Maclean Press, which is dedicated to publications on the history of the West Coast and Hebrides. In 1998 he retired as manager of Cultural and Leisure Services with Highland Council and returned to the Borders, where he continues to maintain and active interest in Scottish history and archaeology.
