Overview

Celebrating the everyday face of the Scottish glen of Annandale, this overview details the many changes that have occurred over the last century in its towns and villages. From expanding communities to developments in communication and the increasing importance of tourism, this examination presents a broad portrait of a landscape rich with history. Stretching from the once-famous spa resort of Moffat in the north to Annan in the south, this investigation also touches on the former railway village of Beattock; Lochmaben, the boyhood home of former Scottish king Robert the Bruce; Ecclefechan, the birthplace of renowned writer Thomas Carlyle; and Lockerbie, which has been associated throughout the world with one of the most terrible disasters in aviation history. Confirming the immense transitions that the 20th century has wrought through a fantastic collection of images, this exploration also demonstrates how much has remained the same in this beautiful region of Great Britain.
