9780114924591: Dumfries and Galloway (Exploring Scotland's Heritage)

This text explores the heritage of Dumfries and Galloway, an area where a hospitable coastline has welcomed missionary and smuggler alike. It looks at points of historical interest such as the two often conflicting powers, secular and church, which dominated the Middle Ages; castles such as Caerlavreock and Threave that are matched by abbeys like Sweetheart and Dundrennan; Robert Burn's farm at Ellisland; and the stone circle of Torhousekie. This book is part of a series, telling the story of a part of Scotland, tracing human impressions on the landscape from World War II relics back to the early pioneer days of the settlement.
