1 MacCannell, Daniel Lost Banff and Buchan
Birlinn Ltd 2012 1780270542 / 9781780270548 Soft cover As New Book 
With b&w illustrations. Lost Baff and Buchan. The region north of Aberdeen and east of Moray is difficult to define. Neither highland or lowland, depopulated or populous, it is a land of surprising contrasts. In this book Daniel MacCannell uncovers many aspects of lost Banff and Buchan. In addition to buildings, transport networks, industries, and ways of life which now no longer exist, from whaling to open-air market trading, he also considers other elements which have been forgotten over time.

2 MacCannell, Daniel. Lost Deeside.
Birlinn, 2011. 9781841589640 2011 1841589640 / 9781841589640 Soft cover As New Book 
Paperback in mint condition. With pp iv, 252, with b&w photographs and illustrations, acknowledgements, further reading, notes and index. A look at the rich and and varied lost legacy of this haunting part of Scotland. In addition to physical things, he also considers much else that has been 'lost' from the history, landscape and collective memory of the area - such as people who played an important part in its history; the local Gaelic of the area which has now died out; the wolf, which lived freely there until the 1680s; and the ways of life of past generations of Deeside people. The result is a vivid and stimulating insight into the way Deeside has changed over many centuries. S2. 
Price: 6.00 GBP
