Product Description

Details

This is a book about a search for a sense of the past, looking at old days and old ways; hoping, perhaps, to find a whisper of those 'voices on the braes'. This is the story of the vanished peoples and communities of the Northeast; of people and places whose lives, achievements and traditions are today on the very edge of memory. Through Deeside, Donside, Strathavon and beyond, Bob Smith searches out the deserted and forgotten villages and clachans which lay throughout the area and whose rich history is now often simply commemorated by anonymous ruins set deep in remote glens. First published in 1997, Land of the Lost was an instant success. This new edition has been expanded by almost half to incorporate chapters on the glens south of Strathdon, the area around Belnagauld and the Bunzeach, Mulloch Hill, the track known as the Pollach Road, the fermtouns around Monymusk, and the area around Foudland. It also includes numerous rare archive photographs.
