Abstract

Tha an alt seo a' toirt iomradh air Sìol Torcail Leòdhais (neo Clann MhicLeòid Leòdhais) mu àm briseadh na h-oighreachd aca (c.1598-1610), agus an dì-meas a bha aig sgrìobhaichean rè an àm fhèin agus aig luchd-eachdraidh on uairsin orra. Tha an alt a' dèanamh sgrùdadh air na beachdan a tha am follais mu dheidhinn a' chinnidh agus a' sireadh, cho fad's a ghabhas sin dèanamh, beachd air dè cho "cothromach" sa bha leithid de bheachdan. Tha e sgrìobhte ann an Gàidhlig. This article, written in Gaelic, examines the views, both contemporary and in subsequent historiography of the Macleods of Lewis, a 'broken' clan who fell foul of James VI's government and were disposessed.
