Description

Using Ardtornish archives, diaries, unpublished letters, and early photographs, Faith Raven introduces two dynamic families who aquired land in Morvern, built houses for themselves and their workers, and influenced – controversially or not – the vast changes in Scottish land ownership and usage that took place between 1830 and 1930. Distillers, politicians, academics, sheep-breeders and sportsmen, they intermarried, enjoyed their summer retreats and welcomed their friends.
