Example text

Although it can be little more than speculation, my suggestion would be that Evah and her father never existed and that there was only one marriage, the other heiress being Dervail MacFiachar. Again, the case for her is shadowy – we are reliant on tradition and on intelligent use of circumstantial evidence. According to the woodman John Dewar, collecting his local tales in the mid-nineteenth century, the MacFiachars themselves claimed descent from Niall of the Nine Hostages. 18 We will be returning later to this castle, which was definitely an early family possession for which the story of Dirvail’s marriage gives an entirely credible raison d’être.
