In what he calls essentially a series of case studies, MacCoinnich examines five different groups of people, both native and stranger and from both within and beyond the region, who competed to control resources on Lewis and other islands of the Northern Hebrides off the west coast of Scotland. He covers the conditions for plantation: the Scottish context before 1598, the lordship of the Macloeds of Lewis, the Fife Adventurers and the plantation of Lewis 1598-1609, the Mackenzies and their plantation of Lewis, the Mackenzie and the Dutch 1628-31, and the English in the isles and the British Fishery Company.
