Wild History: Journeys Through Lost Scotland explores more than 65 ruined and forgotten sites all over the country, taking the reader from the well-worn tourist trails to explore the authentic, unfiltered traces of our shared past. On beaches, on the summits of lonely hills, in the eerie silence of a forest, James finds beautiful and poignant places marked by no plaques and only rarely noted on a map: prehistoric hillforts, abandoned bothies and boathouses. They are being reclaimed by nature. They are wild history. In this beautifully written book, James makes them come alive once more.
