Walks Angus (Hallewell Pocket Walking... Guide)

Glenesk: The History and Culture of an... Angus Community. Glenesk is one of the most beautiful of the Angus glens. Though surrounded by high peaks in its upper reaches and seemingly remote, it is no isolated backwater. A network of hill-paths through the Mounth links Glenesk to Deeside and neighouring Angus glens, while its lower end opens out to the low country of the east. This is one reason why the Glen is so rich in the relics of life and work of the people who have lived there and who have passed through it from early times onwards. This is the story of an upland, rural community, told from the perspectives of the people themselves and covers almost every aspect of glen life. From the distant past to modern day, the book looks at people's changing relationships with the landscape, the buildings they lived, worked and worshipped in and the tools they used. Official documents record the effects of the famine and wars of the 17th-century, and the deprivations suffered either at the hands of marauding Highland caterans or the renegade offspring of their landlords. The text is complemented by many original, period photographs which portray the everyday life of the Glen.

Angus: A Historical Guide (Scottish... Historical Guides. Angus and Kincardine, an area rich in resources, has been of strategic importance for many centuries. The diversity of sights to be found north of the Tay mirrors the variety of historical sites to be found in this part of the country: White Caterhun, north-west of Brechin, dates from the Celtic Iron Age and is a hill-fort, with the largest dry stone wall in Britain; Pictish stones, dating from AD400 on, these ancient monumnets measure up to 14-feet high and bear pagan symbols; Brechin Round Tower, one of only two surviving Irish towers and the site of a monastry in the 11th century; the ruins of Arbroath Abbey, founded by William the Lion; and Claypotts and Edzell, with its walled garden, two of the 16th-century castles in Scotland. This book is a combination of guide, gazetteer and site maps. Its layout is chronological and each chapter deals with a different period, from prehistoric times to the industrial age.
