Raasay The Island and its People


Raasay The Island and its People
by Norma MacLeod,
2002 Birlinn Limited



This book traces the island's history from the medieval period into the twentieth century and shows that Raasay, far from being a carbon copy of Skye in microcosm, has a history of its own forged by its own unique attributes.

The book is the first detailed history of one of the most varied and beautiful of all the Hebridean islands.

It challenges many long-held assumptions about the early history of Raasay and is a major contribution to the current literature on the Scottish islands.
