But it is also something more than that. It is an attempt to unite the resources of archaeology, geography, hagiography and history in building up a composite picture of the early history of Argyll, of the ancient kingdom of Dalriada, and of the work of the Celtic saints in the West Highlands of Scotland. While Dr. Pochin Mould disclaims the authority of an expert in any of the fields of study of which she has made use, she succeeds in drawing a very persuasive picture of how the Celtic Church first came to Scotland and of the way in which it developed and spread.

Ninian, Columcille, Moluag, Kenneth, Maelrubha and Donnan are the chief of the saints with which her story deals, and we come to appreciate in how heroic a mould such resolute characters were cast.The fify-one photographic illustrations are more than a mere embellishment of the book, for in them may be seen much of the geographical and architectural evidence on which the author bases her thesis.

There are pictures, for example, of the line of Glen Tarbet as seen from the air, of Dunbarton Rock and Dunadd, of ruined stone cells and of curraghs similar to those used by the early missionaries, of Iona, Mull, Islay and Rodil, and of some of the finest surviving Celtic crosses. The beauty of these illustrations, and the scholarship of Dr.

Pochin Moulds text, will appeal strongly to everyone interested in the wide-spreading kingdom of Dalriada, in the early Scottish saints, and in the coming of the Celtic Church to Scotland.
