It can be purchased soft cover ( 838 pages) at most highland games with
booksellers. Black does not talk about clans; he uses ancient legal
documents to identify names from particular areas. Most Clan Donald
tents (and many other clans) will have a copy at their tent. Black
says MacWhirter is a form of MacChrutiter, current in Ayrshire, the
original home of the name.

Gee, wish I had access to that book. Does it have any suggestions for
McWhirter? (I know you don't have time to look up every surname, but
it's fun
thinking about the possibilities.)
