Across Scotland there are many lost villages - abandoned communities that no longer exist. This fascinating book takes the reader on a tour of forty such places. Many villages were created by mining companies to house their workers. Others were small seaside communities that were destroyed by wind-blown sand. Others were forcibly removed by landowners, either determined to improve their estates, or in some case, just to improve the view from their own country houses!
