Argyll, includes the ancient seat of the Scots, Dalriada. In later times it was to become the heartland of the Clan Campbell, though Islay remained in the hands of the Lord of the Isles. A mountainous county stretching from the Mull of Kintyre to Glencoe, it includes many islands - Islay, Jura, Mull, Coll and Tiree among them. Its economy depends on agriculture, forestry and fishing.
