Aberdeenshire: South and Aberdeen

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingOther contribution


The second of two books exploring the buildings of the north-east of Scotland, this volume surveys Aberdeen - the nation's third-largest city - and the southern area of Aberdeenshire, including the former county of Kincardineshire. Among Aberdeen's architectural highlights are the great medieval cathedral and burgh church of St Nicholas, the buildings of King's College, and magnificent civic, commercial and domestic buildings of the Victorian and Edwardian age. In addition, the book showcases not only Aberdeenshire's greatest houses and castles including Crathes, Craigievar and Balmoral, the royal family's Scottish estate, but also buildings and monuments as varied in scale and type as prehistoric hillforts, Georgian town houses, rural churches, fishing lodges and textile mills. Both volumes are comprehensively illustrated with specially commissioned colour photography.
