Folk of the Loch
Folk of the Loch tells stories of the North West Highlands, from its earliest beginnings of shifting rock and land-scouring ice to present times. It is both a geographical and historical saga. Each chapter is based on an artefact, place or event which can be found or occurred near to Loch Broom in Western Ross.
Meet the last reindeer who came here before ice sheets buried the land, a Mesolithic boy on his first hunt, Neolithic shamans, a skilled builder of Iron Age towers and a Viking woman who came to settle by the loch. Read of warring clans and troubled times for the crofters in the 19th century. Eleven chapters take the reader through a journey beginning in the earliest geological period, and then via Ice Ages, Stone, Bronze and Iron Ages into present times. The landscape shows evidence of their presence while local legends and place names provide intriguing glimpses of their lives.
