Overview

There is a 'lost city' lying to the north of the modern city of Aberdeen. It is Scotland's most compact and least known architectural treasure-house. In this fine Burgh is a pattern-book of Scottish architecture, both vernacular and classical, and offers one of the most significant townscapes in all of Scotland. The conservation area of Old Aberdeen contains specimens of almost every type and size of Scottish building, sweeping picturesque views of the River Don and the 13th-century Brig o'Balgownie, the Georgian town-houses of the Highland aristocracy, the highly-distinctive buildings of the ancient University of Aberdeen, atmospheric graveyards, long lawns and vistas, and a cobbled High Street of great distinction. Using their expert knowledge and sumptuous photography, the authors capture the unique cityscape and distinctive past of Old Aberdeen. The Lost City details the rich treasures of the burgh, with many illustrations drawn from the University's library and museum collections, a number of which are reproduced for the first time.
