A very pleasant tale of a young man Mordaunt Mertoun and his rather eccentric father who take up residence in Yarlshof a ruined habitation on a deserted piece of the coastline in Zetland nowadays known as Shetland a group of islands off the northeast coast of Scotland The title character whom it is not revealed is a follower of this buccaneering profession until well into the novel the first use of the word pirate comes on page 443 is rescued by Mordaunt from a ship which is dashed to pieces on the rocks He then makes his way to Burgh Westra the home of Magnus Troil and his lovely daughters Minna and Brenda They are polar opposites the former dark melancholy and intellectual the latter light cheery and somewhat frivolous They are close friends with Mordaunt who is also always welcomed by their father This changes during the stay of Clement Cleveland the pirate with the Troils and is slowly becomes apparent to Mordaunt that their positive feelings for him have signficantly altered A major character throughout the novel is Norna of the Fitful Head generally regarded by the island s inhabitants as a witch who can use spells to alter the weather Minor characters and real delights they are are Triptolemus Yellowley and his haridan of a sister Barbara He was sent to study religion but only paid attention during lessons dealing with agricultural practices which he tries with absolutely no success to reform on the island Pacolet a repulsive dwarf lives with Norna in her habitation among ruins by the promontory of her title There is also a fiddler rhymester and interminable story teller Claud Halcro who once met John Dryden Wonderful John and must be actively discouraged from recounting the tale ad nauseum An itinerant peddlar Bryce Snailsfoot was concerned with looting Cleveland s chest while Mordaunt was trying to save the pirate s life and is in fact the one responsible for spreading scurrilous rumours about Mordaunt among the Troil family Eventually Cleveland and Mordaunt come to blows over the young ladies and the manner in which this is sorted out is complicated by the arrival of Cleveland s sister ship in Kirkwall harbour and the intercession of his crew which upset his plans to leave pirating behind in order to pursue his love for Minna At least two relatively shocking revelations of unknown parentage the first I d figured out long before the second I never would have seen coming one happy marriage a return to the true religion and a glorious death in battle tie up a novel in which Scott had all his juggling balls nicely balanced through his adroit handling of plot character humour love and geography
