Lost Deeside

by Daniel MacCannell - Find out more about the author

In this book Dan MacCannell looks at the rich and varied lost legacy of this haunting part of Scotland, from castles and houses to hospitals, illicit stills and even a loch. In addition to physical things, he also considers much else that has been ‘lost’ from the history, landscape and collective memory of the area – such as people who played an important part in its history; the local Gaelic of the area which has now died out; the wolf, which lived freely there until the 1680s; and the ways of life of past generations of Deeside people. The result is a vivid and stimulating insight into the way Deeside has changed over many centuries.

Daniel MacCannell, a graduate of Aberdeen University and UCLA’s MFA-Screenwriting program, is a widely published non-fiction writer who has received the Jack Nicholson prize and been nominated for the Fotokem Maverick Award for his fictional work. He edited the highly acclaimed book The Lost City: Old Aberdeen, also published by Birlinn.
