    Alasdair MacColla was one of the greatest warriors of the Highland tradition, yet remains a shadowy figure in Scottish history, only emerging from obscurity as second in command to the Marquis of Montrose in the 1644-5 victories over the Covenanters. This study examines MacColla's achievements as a soldier and his part in the Montrose campaigns, provides a general reassessment of those campaigns and examines political changes in clan leadership in the Highlands during the 17th century.
