    This is the first book ever to be written on the collective history of the little group of islands between Ardnamurchan and Skye.

    As some of the best known Hebridean islands, Canna, Rum, Eigg and Muck have a long and varied history, but are also amongst the least

    documented. Rum was the playground of the Macruari kings of the Northern Hebrides; Eigg was the island meeting point where their

    descendants conceded primacy to the Islay Macdonalds, while Muck and Canna were the property of Iona, spiritual nerve centre of the west.

    With reference to both the extensive material remains on the islands and rare original source material, this book is a dynamic and wideranging

    account of the Small Isles and their history.
