The Unremembered Places: Exploring Scotlands Wild Histories
Now in paperback, the much-praised exploration of the many strange relics hidden across Scotland’s landscape - forgotten places that are touchstones to incredible stories and past lives which still resonate today. From the high mountain passes of an ancient droving route to a desolate moorland graveyard, from uninhabited postindustrial islands and Clearance villages to caves explored by early climbers and the mysterious strongholds of Christian missionaries, Patrick Baker makes a series of journeys on foot and by paddle. Combining a rich fusion of travelogue and historical narrative, he threads themes of geology, natural and social history, literature, and industry from the places he visits, discovering connections between people and place more powerful than can be imagined.
