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.
