The island of Skye is the largest of the Hebridean islands, and without question is the one which has the most mystique or reputation, both for its rich history and for its Celtic/Viking culture. This is a general history of the island and of its population, discussing the early Celtic settlers, the introduction of Celtic Christianity by Columba, the nature and impact of the Norwegian settlements, the influence of such men as Olaf the Red of Man, Somerled, and Haaco. It also traces the beginnings of the families who would dominate the island and fight for its control over the next 800 years: the MacLeods, the Mackinnons, the Nicholsons, and the MacQueens, as well as the MacDonalds, the MacLeans, and the Mackenzies. It is a well written history which unfolds over the centuries, tracing the interaction of the island increasingly with the government slowly developing in Edinburgh and showing the consequences of the incorporation of the island into what would become Scotland.
