This series provides an introduction to the archaeological heritage of Scotland, detailing the story of one part of the country. The details are filled in by a gazetteer of the most interesting and best preserved monuments, and aim to encourage the reader to explore further using the full-colour section on day excursions. This volume details prehistoric forts, a special kind of stone circle, a range of Pictish symbol stones and various castles. The history of early burghs such as Aberdeen and Elgin can be traced through their fine cathedrals and town houses, while the estate improvements of the 18th and 19th centuries have left important bridges and harbours.
