MoreThe story of the changing countryside of Scotland can be traced through its buildings. All the successive phases of agricultural development - from the 18th century revolution of Improvement to the factory farming of the 20th century - are recorded in stone, concrete and steel.

The result of over ten years research by RCAHMS, this is the first book to record the farm buildings of Scotland as a whole. The result is a volume vividly illustrated with plans, drawings and photographs covering a wide variety of building types - from great estates and lowland steadings to highland crofts - and tracing their evolution against the development of Scottish agriculture over the past 300 years. Susanna Wade Martins and Miles Glendinning present a fascinating story of diversity and change, which will be of great interest to those concerned with agricultural, architectural, social and landscape history, and the future of Scotlands countryside.
