Product Description


Most of us move too quickly through the landscape and townscape, hurrying about our daily business, looking where we are going, too seldom noticing where we are. East Lothian deserves much more than a traveller's glance. It is one of the most gently striking parts of Scotland, its long vistas fill the eye, its volcanic rocks recall ancient drama and its beautiful fields roll down from the Lammermuirs to the blue of the sea and far horizon.

The photographer, Liz Hanson, has often stopped to look at East Lothian, every part of it, and over many years her camera has captured all its seasons and many of its unique atmospheres. 

Punctuating Liz Hanson's record of the essential nature of East Lothian is a short history by Alistair Moffat. The story turns out to be as dramatic and beguiling as the landscapes and townscapes. Together the words and pictures speak quietly but clearly of a beautiful place.
