Tha ùidh agam ann an eachdraidh agus cultur na Gàidhealtachd anns a h-uile linn, gu h-àraid linn nam fineachan eadar deireadh na siathamh linn deug agus deireadh na h-ochdamh linn deug. Chan eil fada on dh’ fhoillisich mi alt mu iasgach – agus buaidh iasgaich air oirthir na Gàidhealtachd. Tha mi ri obair rannsachaidh an dràsta air malairt chruidh air Ghàidhealtachd anns an 19mh linn; Eachdraidh nan Gàidheal an Gall-Ghaidhealaibh is Siorrachd Inbhir Àir (16mh linn); Calaidhean agus laimhrigean air Ghàidhealtachd. Tha ùidh agam ann an raon farsaing de chuspairean co-cheangailt ri eachdraidh nan Gàidheal, iad seo, mar a leanas:

  • Malairt, coigrich agus luchd siubhail thall sa bhos air Ghaidhealtachd ro 1760
  • Coluadar eadar an àrainneachd agus na daoine air Ghaidhealtachd: iasgach, malairt chruidh, obair choilltean is eile
  • Cultur is coimhearsnachd nam fineachan Gaidhealach
  • Teacsaichean Beurla agus Gàidhlig – ann an làmh-sgrìobhainn agus ann an clò
  • Planntachadh, leudachadh cumhachd na stàite is buaidh seo air coimhearsnachdan na Gaidhealtachd
  • Buaidh foghlaim is comasan sgrìobhaidh air a’ Ghaidhealtachd thar nan linntean
  • Na Gaidheil anns a' bhaile-mhor agus thall-thairis.

I am interested in all aspects of the history and culture of the Highlands and Islands of Scotland with a focus on the period between the end of the sixteenth century and the end of the eighteenth century. My most recent publication looked at Hebridean fisheries. I am currently working on topics including Gaelic in Galloway and Carrick in the 16th and 17th century; the Highland cattle trade in the 17th century; piers, harbours and maritime activity in the Gàidhealtachd – and on two unpublished 17th century Clan Mackay poems. More broadly my research interests fall into the following themes.

  • Textual cultures, print and manuscript and the early modern Gàidhealtachd
  • Gaelic – the history of the language in Scotland over the last 1000 years
  • Plantation, state formation and Highland society 
  • Clans and Clanship. Society and culture in the Highlands
  • Resource exploitation and the environment in the early modern Gaidhealtachd
  • Commerce, trade and travellers to and from the Highlands prior to 1760
  • Education and literacy in the Highlands pre 1800
  • Gaelic communities and networks in Scotland and beyond
