Dr Gaskell's pioneering study of social and economic change in a west Highland parish during the last century has come to be regarded as a classic of local history, a book which raises issues that are still of general and indeed of national importance. But Morvern Transformed is more than a study of history: it is (to quote Professor R. H.

Morvern is a roughly triangular-shaped peninsula lying west of Fort William and at the foot of the Great Glen.

It speaks of Morvern, but describes a whole breed of West Highlanders. It clarifies the Highlander's own view of the Clan, a very necessary exercise at a time when notions of what a Clan is, are becoming romantically distanced from the reality.
