This biography presents the first full account of MacColla's career, drawing on Gaelic prose, poetry and oral tradition - in which he is celebrated as a hero and liberator - as well as more conventional historical sources. What emerges is a story of a warrior who fought for his clan, his catholic religion and his Highland world - against the supremacy of Clan Campbell, The Lowlands and England.

'Have you ever forgotten that battle at Lochy, When we with our blades mowed you down like oats standing? And likewise Auldearn where our mighty MacColla Left your hero from Lawers lying lifeless and silent, That rebel from hell with his regiment accurst! You scattered and fled like sheep from a martin, On the day of Kilsyth your panic was fearful... We left not alive a single survivor Of the breed of MacCailean we met in that battle...' - Alexander MacDonald
