Synopsis

'Beautifullly illustrated and evocative' Country Life '[A] sumptuous book...Ian Gow covers all this indefensible waste and destruction with dry wit' Gavin Stamp, TLS 'An authoritative and beautiful book' Scottish Field Scotland's Lost Houses saw Aurum extending its distinguished list of lavishly illustrated architecture titles to enable it to cover a subject that could not be illustrated entirely by photographs from the Country Life archive. Conceived as a follow-up to the hugely successful England's Lost Houses, Scotland's Lost Houses draws primarily on the peerless photographic resource of the National Monuments Record in Edinburgh, but also even on the remarkable albums taken by a Perthshire demolition contractor in the fifties, to build a poignant and beautiful portrait of 20 magnificent country houses now lost for ever, including Hamilton Palace, Rosneath, Balbardie, Amisfield, Gordon Castle, Guisachan, Dunglass and Millearne Ian Gow is Curator of the National Trust of Scotland, and the pre-eminent authority on Scotland's architectural heritage. He is the author of Scottish Houses and Gardens, (Aurum 978 1 84513 289 7).
