A book of Gaelic songs and hymns compiled by Iain N Macleod, a former headmaster in Bernera school. Iain was so impressed by the bardachd of John Smith from Earshader that he decided to gather as much of his work as he could. The more time he spent in Lewis the more he became aware of the wealth of bardachd throughout the island. After leaving the Lewis he continued with his collection and in 1916, thirteen years after he first started, Bardachd Leodhais was finally published.
Due to popular demand the book was re-printed in 1955.
