This land is ours

In 1806 William MacKay and his wife, Jane Scobie, together with their six children left the Scottish Highlands for Canada’s Prince Edward Island. A reluctant Jane had finally realised that their venal clan chief would betray the MacKays. Little did she know that her family’s journey would finish seventy years later in Australia, living in one of the country’s grandest mansions. Set against the violent backdrop of the expanding British Empire, the family is held together by succeeding generations of remarkable women who unflinchingly endure the hardships of frontier life. The MacKays’ eventual success illustrates how courage and determination can triumph against the odds but comes at a cost to themselves and their compatriots.
