Description:

In Lost Perthshire, Ann Lindsay takes us on a fascinating journey through the lost architectural, geographical, industrial, and archaeological heritage of Perthshire. Perthshire has been the centre to a wide range of industries which flourished and then disappeared, including printing, book binding, boat building, salmon curing, textiles, many small whisky distilleries, and newspapers. All of these were fed by a network of mountain passes, drove roads, military roads and bridges, ferries, a flourishing harbour, massive rail junction and a wartime aerodrome that have also disappeared. Beyond this, Ann Lindsay examines how Perthshire’s boundaries have moved over the last two centuries, with much of the original Perthshire now ‘lost’ due to its incorporation into different counties.
