By the power of his sword arm, his dragon fleet and his sheer
personality, Somerled Norse Slayer carved an enduring name for himself
in Scottish legend.

Inheriting his father's shattered thanedom in Argyll in the twelfth
century, he enlarged it by courage, initiative, military shrewdness and
diplomacy. For decades his navy held the balance of power in the
northern seas, and it was he who cleared the Vikings out of the
Hebrides.

Set against the romantically celebrated West Highlands and Western Isles
of Scotland, the story of the conquests and courage of this hero king is
a living tribute to a renowned legend.
