Description

The great travellers of the 17th century Martin, Penant, Johnson et al used the word 'curiosity' to mean many different things. Theylabelled as 'curiosities' people, plants, legends, historical facts and geological certainties. This book follows their example in a 21st centuryjourney around Argyll and its islands.It is difficult to find an area of Argyll which is not curious in some way: archaeology, geography, geology and genealogy have all served to markout this western fringe of Scotland as unique. Discarding those curiosities which it is all too easy to find on any journey through the county,Marian Pallister has looked extensively into places, people and events which are curiously layered, and has created a book that is overflowingwith enchanting 'curiosities' and local histories.
