The Island and Its People
Island Of Mull. The
story of a Scottish island as it has never been told before.
While many books on the Hebrides are a litany of agricultural
statistics and population movements, this is the story of the
landlords, tacksmen, cottars and others who actually lived on
or visited the island of Mull. It is based on research into
a vast archive of rarely seen or previously unknown documents,
particularly the original correspondence of the principal families,
Macleans and Maclaines. In this book Jo Currie relates how the
emigration that led to the disappearance of most of the island's
native population during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries
did not follow the pattern of clearance seen in other parts
of the country. It was instead caused by the long deterioration
in relationships between the gentry, the 'half gentry' and commoners
and the inexorable forces of economic change during these centuries.
This is the first serious history ever written of one of the
most beautiful and most visited of Hebridean islands and is
the product of fifteen years' research. It is lavishly illustrated
with a wealth of previously unpublished pictures. The result
is one of the most important books on Hebridean history yet
written, told throughout with humour and masterful characterisation.

Isle of Mull: Tranquillity and Spectacular Beauty in the Inner
Hebrides (Island Tributes S.)
Island Of Mull. The
island, the largest in the Inner Hebrides apart from Skye, appeals
to visitors in many ways. The shapely mountainous areas, the
stepped silhouettes of the lower hills, the islets and skerries
immediately to the west, the striking cloud formations and the
clean colours of everything, enchant and entrance those who
see them. The author describes these attributes of Mull sensitively,
assisted by splendid colour photographs and other illustrations,
pointing to the sense of space and serenity so often yearned
for by town folk; and he touches on the story of Mull, island
activities past and present, and on the warm welcome and the
hospitality accorded today to visitors by the residents.
Voices: Traditions of North Mull
Island Of Mull. Focusing
on North Mull, north of Glen More, but excluding Craignure,
Torosay and Brolas, this book is an anthology of the tales and
traditions of Mull in the words of those who tell them. The
writing covers belief and superstitions, pastimes, work, health
and cures, tales and proverbs. The subjects are taken from a
wide range of sources and periods, from Martin Martin in the
17th century to writing which dates from the end of World War
II, a time which saw much change in Gaelic society as a whole.
The material covers traditions and accounts of a very practical
and often harsh existence, variations on tales which are more
obscure as well as those that are well known. The book is a
celebration of a people that are often excluded from the standard
historical accounts of the clans and Highlands, but who have
endured much and safeguarded an important heritage.
