The Celtic Review vol 5. July 1908 to April 1909.

'A Celtist Honoured', Rev Donald Maclean.
After the deaths of Hector Maclean and JF Campbell of Islay, Alexander Carmichael was regarded as one of the principal experts in the field of Highland Folklore. Rev Maclean comments that Carmichael contributed a considerable amount to Celtic literature, including a version of the tale of 'Deirdire' and the 'Carmina Gadelica'

Carmichael's greatest contribution to Celtic literature is the 'Carmina Gadelica', a unique collection of old Gaelic hymns and incantations.

'The Barons of Bachuill', by Alexander Carmichael.
This essay concerns the island of Lismore and the Barons of Bachuill. This page tells the story of a piper and his dog who attempted to walk through the underground passages across Lismore from Uamh Chraidh to Uamh-an-duine. It is said that the piper's music could be heard coming through the ground. The dog emerged from the caves hairless and sightless but the pipe music suddenly stopped and the piper never emerged. There are similar stories told all over the world
