This volume is the first of two to illuminate the buildings of the northeast of Scotland. It covers not only Aberdeenshire's historic districts of Formartine, Buchan, and Banff but also the whole of Moray. Picturesque former fishing villages cling to the rugged coastline, while the inland rivers support some of the most famous whisky distilleries in Scotland. Also included are examples of the finest medieval ecclesiastical architecture, notably the ruins of Elgin Cathedral, major country houses such as Brodie Castle and Duff House, as well as the churches and public buildings of the numerous planned settlements, villages, and major towns.
