    Whisky Wars, Riots And Murder: Crime In The 19th Century Highlands And Islands
    Malcolm Archibald - Paperback - Black & White Publishing
    Although the 19th-century elite looked on the Highlands and Islands as a sporting paradise, for the indigenous population it was a turbulent place. Rather than a rural idyll, the glens and moors were home to poachers and whisky smugglers, while the towns were always ready to explode into riot and disorder. Even the Hebridean seas had their dangers while the islands seethed with discontent. 'Whisky Wars, Riots and Murder' reveals the reality behind the facade of romantic tartan and vast estates.
