of the Lost: Exploring the... North-east's Vanished Townships.
This is a book about a search for a sense of the past, looking
at old days and old ways; hoping, perhaps, to find a whisper
of those voices on the braes. This is the story of the vanished
peoples of the Northeast; of people and places whose lives,
achievements and traditions are today on the very edge of memory.
Through Deeside, Donside, Strathavon and beyond, Bob Smith searches
out the deserted and forgotten villages and clachans which lay
throughout the area and whose rich history is now often simply
commemorated by anonymous ruins set deep in remote glens. First
published in 1997, Land of the Lost was an instant success.
This new edition has been expanded by almost half to incorporate
chapters on the glens south of Strathdon, the area around Belnagauld
and the Bunzeach, Mulloch Hill, the track known as the Pollach
Road, the fermtouns around Monymusk, and the area around Foudland.
It also includes numerous rare archive photographs.
Buchan Claik: A Compendium of Words and Phrases from the North-east of Scotland Buchan Claik combines the writing talents of two of Aberdeenshire’s best-known authors, ex-fisherman Peter Buchan and ex-farmworker David Toulmin, to produce a splendid hoard of words, sayings, proverbs, rhymes and reminiscences from the North-East of Scotland, particularly the Buchan area, where they both lived and worked for most of their lives.
Following the publication of the first edition of this book in 1989 they continued to collect material, making notes as it came to mind and this second edition, revised and updated, provides an extra forty pages of new information.
Although ‘Buchan Claik’ is presented alphabetically, it is more than just a dictionary. These men had too much information on tap; too many stories up their sleeves; too many years discussing the land and the sea to be muzzled by the constraints a dictionary would apply. Given a free rein, they compiled a book which will become a safe-deposit for an important part of our heritage.
