Lost Perthshire by Ann Lindsay

In "Lost Perthshire", Ann Lindsay takes us on a fascinating journey through the lost architectural, geographical, industrial, and archaeological heritage of Perthshire. Perth has been the centre to a wide range of industries that flourished and then disappeared, including printing, ink making, book binding, boat building, glove making, salmon curing, textiles, bleaching, dyeing, cleaning and insurance (General Accident), many small whisky distilleries, newspapers and small shops. All of these were fed by a network of mountain passes, drove roads, military roads and bridges, ferries, a flourishing harbour, massive rail junction and a wartime aerodrome which have also vanished.


General Wade's Legacy


At last – a detailed and richly illustrated survey (book and map) of General Wade’s life work of military roads and bridges in Perthshire, including perhaps his most famous, Aberfeldy’s Wade Bridge.

The Beat of Heart Stones by Linda Cracknell

Sunshine and snow

Posted: Sat 14th Jan

Life is good It's a wonderful crisp, sunny, snowy day here at The Watermill. The baristas are working to a soundtrack of mellow jazz and the coffee smells fantastic. People stamp the snow off their boots as they come in and either go down for a cup of something warming or upstairs for a wander through the gallery or set about having a serious browse among the books. A customer is in a comfy chair between the poetry section and Thrillers having a quiet read. Life is good!!
