A comprehensive study of the Scottish county of Argyll, this is the fascinating account of the history of the region and the physical remains that directly link with its past, from pre-Christian and Medieval sculpture to churches, great castles, and houses. Author and local resident Mary McGrigor also explores the industry of the area, including farming, forestry, fishing, and whisky distilling, and writes about the main towns of Argyll. Illustrated with spectacular, specially commissioned photography, this book captures Argyll’s inexplicable magic, which continues to cast its spell over those who know and love the area; it is also a magnificent introduction for those yet to be enthralled by this “land of blood and beauty.”
