Cradle of the Scots: an Argyll Anthology

March 26, 2008


Argyll, where the Scots from Ireland first settled, has many claims to be the homeland of the Scottish nation. It has also got an unrivalled wealth of literary associations – local writers in Latin, English and Gaelic – from St Columba to Iain Crichton Smith – are joined by visitors to this beautiful corner of Scotland. With the invaluable help of Ronie Renton as our Gaelic expert Ronnie Armstrong and I have edited an anthology of writing with its roots in Argyll. When one goes over the Rest and Be Thankful into Argyll [pictured above] one enters a very different world and this anthology should interest anyone with a love for the area.
