Part guide, part gazetteer, part anthology, Cooper presents a comprehensive picture of the west coast of Scotland's magical Isle of Skye, past and present, in this new and updated edition of his classic and authoritative bestseller. He recollects the days when the sea was the great highway to Skye and the island lay at the center of the Gaelic world. St. Columba landed on it in 585. Cooper includes some forty pieces from writers, travellers, politicians, mountaineers, poets, painters, and tourists, including Samuel Johnson, James Boswell, and Sir Walter Scott.
