Description

The fascinating variety of Scotland's church buildings is rarely appreciated. Many are hidden away in remote country areas, or in parts of towns and cities not often visited. Others are critical to the 'sense of place' that makes settlements recognised and loved. In this book over a hundred and fifty churches still used for worship are illustrated with line drawings and photographs, with pithy texts drawing out where they fit into the fabric of Scotland, and into nearly a thousand years of church construction. Some are well-known and widely loved; others will surprise and delight.
