    Land of the Lost: Exploring the North-East’s Vanished Townships By (author) Robert Smith. This is a book about a search for a sense of the past, looking at old days and old ways; hoping, perhaps, to find a whisper of those ‘voices on the braes’.   On the Inlets and Islands cruise, sights and stops include the Kyles and Isle of Bute, a walk on the West Island Way trail, and a visit to St. Blane’s Chapel, a historic ruin. Other highlights include the Isle of Arran and a stop at Glenan Bay to visit the deserted village of Glenan, abandoned during the Highland Clearances.

    The Isle of Arran is often referred to as a miniature Scotland because it is divided into highland and lowland areas. It is home to Neolithic sites, castles, hiking trails, whisky distilleries, lochs, and beaches. Exploring the Isle of Arran will truly allow you to see Scotland in miniature. "Exploring Disused Railways in East Scotland" by Michael Mather looks at what can still be seen, and in many cases walked or cycled, when following the courses of sixteen of these disused lines. The book is well researched and informative, and is one we know we will want to refer back to in future.
