Scottish historian and prolific writer. He was writer of architectural and history books about castles, and also of deeply researched historical novels that cover centuries of Scottish history.
Tranter was actively involved in affairs outside his writing. From the 1940s onwards he delivered lectures to private groups and organisations, and, as his writing career developed, he undertook many speaking engagements, including some tours to the USA. He was also invited to join—or was instrumental in setting up—many committees and community groups.
