Description:

Lying among the sea lochs of southern Argyll, near the centre of the ancient waterways that once connected Scotland to Ireland and beyond, the Isle of Bute is a treasure trove of thousands of years of archaeological remains. With earliest occupation by hunter gatherers estimated at around 9,000BC, the island s remarkable landscape features a wealth of monuments ranging from standing stones, chambered tombs and forts, to monasteries, castles and industrial cotton mills. Drawing on the results of a groundbreaking survey carried out by RCAHMS with the Discover Bute Landscape Partnership Scheme, authors Alex Hale and George Geddes take readers on a fascinating journey through the diverse layers of Bute s past. With detailed maps, plans and photographs providing the most comprehensive ever guide to the island s sites of interest, 'The Archaeological Landscape of Bute' offers an unparalleled insight into one of Scotland s richest historical environments.
