A Heritage in Stone
Characters and Conservation in North East Scotland
Ian Mitchell Davidson
The castles and other properties owned and managed by the National Trust for Scotland are precious jewels in the crown of the nation’s heritage. Ensuring they provide a wonderful experience for visitors requires expertise and enthusiasm from many people, mostly unseen, who offer specialist knowledge and long-term thinking. This book pays tribute to the craftspeople, gardeners, foresters, managers, guides, surveyors, architects, archaeologists, conservators, planners and more, who have made the Trust’s properties so very special to so many people. It celebrates their many and various contributions as part of a long and continuing tradition in this beautiful large-format, highly illustrated volume.
‘A lovely coffee table book with fabulous pictures and a wonderful tale to tell.’
