The Highlands of Scotland, and more specifically the clans that inhabit them, have a romantic resonance and mystery.
Fitzroy Maclean recounts their extraordinary history, from their Celtic origins to Robert the Bruce, the wars of independence and Bannockburn, from Flodden, Mary Queen of Scots to the Jacobite Risings of the eighteenth century, the nineteenth-century Clearances and the modern day.
Highlanders sheds light on the motivation and character of the clans, bringing vividly to life their highly dramatic stories.
Never before has there been such a thorough and well-balanced view of Highland history.
