Scotlands Lost Gardens

£20
A new paperback edition of the sell-out history which rediscovers the fascinating stories of the nation's vanished historic gardens. Drawing on varied, rare and newly available archive material, including the cartography of Timothy Pont, a spy map of Holyrood drawn for Henry VIII during the 'Rough Wooing', medieval charters, renaissance poetry, the Accounts of the Lord High Treasurer, and modern aerial photography, a remarkable picture emerges of centuries of lost landscapes. It provides a unique perspective on this common past and is also a fascinating guide to Scotland's disappeared landscapes and sanctuaries.
