The Life and Troubled Times of Sir Donald Campbell of Ardnamurchan Book Cover

The Life and Troubled Times of Sir Donald Campbell of Ardnamurchan, by Alastair Lorne Campbell of Airds, Unicorn Pursuivant

This account of his ancestor, who is said to have been ‘Fleshed in Blood from his Verie Infancie’, is a daunting task even for Airds. The latter points out that although he is only a descendant through the female line, Sir Donald made Aird’s male ancestor his heir and was thus the founder of the fortunes of his branch of Clan Campbell. Sir Donald an illegitimate son of Campbell of Cawdor, rose to be the confidant of two successive Chiefs of his clan and one of the most powerful leaders of Clan Campbell at the height of the Great Civil War of the seventeenth century.
