The story of Gigha – from pre-historic until today

Just off the Kintyre peninsula lies the small island of Gigha, the most southerly Hebridean isle.

Due to a mild climate, fertile land and an advantageous geographical location, Gigha harbours an interesting history.

This book takes the reader on a journey of the inhabitants of the island, starting from the settlers of pre-historic times to the Celts, Vikings and McNeil lords, right through to the present day.

The Way It Was: A History of Gigha by Catherine Czerkawska, published by Birlinn, £12.99.
