The Celtic Review
A series of Articles was published in the Celtic Review
which make interesting reading.
The first was called "THE BARONS OF BACHUILL" by
ALEXANDER CARMICHAEL LL.D. and was published in Volume V of The Celtic
Review April 15 1909, pp 356-375. Alexander Carmichael was born on
Lismore in 1832 and was educated at Greenock Academy, and in Edinburgh.
As a civil servant with Customs and Excise he was known locall as the “Gadger”.His
most famous publication was Carmina Gadelica (1900). He died in 1912.
The Rev Ian Carmichael, DSO, MC later corrected some anomalies in Lismore
in Alba but there is some lovely detail in this article which was not
included in the book.
This article prompted a Response from Neil D Campbell who later became
the Duke of Argyll.
Finally Carmichael wrote this article on Donald Livingstone who saved
the banner of theAppin Regiment at Culloden.
