The most comprehensive history of Clan Donald, originally published in three volumes between 1896 and 1904. Somerled founded Clan Donald over 800 years ago. This largest of clans consolidated its power in the north of Scotland and its western isles until the fall of the Lordship in 1493, still retaining power through several divisions until the clan system was smashed in 1745. After the Battle of Culloden in 1746, many members of Clan Donald were driven from their homelands and scattered all over the world, becoming influential in all areas of society. This book describes the lives and times of the Lords of the Isles and tells the stories of the branches that rose to prominence after 1745.

Donald J. Macdonald, twelfth lord of Castleton, was born in Edinburgh in May 1897. He was educated at Royal High School, where he was inspired by Dr. W. J. Watson (later professor of Celtic history at Edinburgh University) to take up the study of Highland history and the Gaelic language. After serving in World War I and living in British East Africa under the Soldier Settlement scheme, he returned to Edinburgh to settle and raise a family. For more than thirty years he was associated with the Clan Donald Society of Edinburgh, serving for nine years as president. His first book, Slaughter under Trust (1965), chronicled the Massacre of Glencoe.
