This booklet is based on letters from two tiny islands in the Western Isles (Outer Hebrides) of Scotland, namely Boreray and Killegray. Primary material from these islands is basically impossible to... More > find. These letters provide a snapshot of how the wealthy lived at that time; a marked change to the normal croft / peasant / working class focus of island histories. The letters were to a lawyer with strong family connections in Skye and Vallay; he was part of the Macdonald 'chief' line. He was also a major Edinburgh lawyer and a good friend to Sir Walter Scott. This book adds detail to the life of John Maclean of Boreray, the inhabitants of Vallay and the Campbells of Killegray and Strond. It provides, as well, a useful insight into the economy of the time throughout the Western Isles, and of the people's mood on Uist. The book also adds to the postal history of these islands and of Skye. It is a unique glimpse into two islands that time has now forgotten.< Less
