Badenoch and Strathspey is a land of many contrasts, and in modern times a land of many uses. Not always has it been the playground of winter sports enthusiasts and a mecca for tourists - for centuries the mountains which protected the province of Moray to the north and the Highland glens to the west were an obstacle to travel and a haven for cattle thieves and reivers. In this fascinating book, illustrated with over 100 period photographs, Bruce B. Bishop explores the changing face of the area over millennia, from the Ice Age, Pictish and Celtic times through the coming of Christianity, the Jacobite rebellions, the more leisured Victorian age, and the twentieth century. Being a rural part of the country, Lost Badenoch and Strathspey covers not only lost buildings - churches, castles and other structures in the main settlements of Badenoch and Strathspey, Aberlour, Tomintoul, Grantown-on-Spey, Aviemore, Kingussie, Newtonmore and Dallwhinnie - but also lost ways of life and industry, from droving and fishing to milling, transportation.
