Cover : paperback
Price : £9.00

Described in the 19th century Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland as ‘a pleasant little place’ with 'a post office under Cumnock, with money order and savings' bank departments, gasworks, three inns, and a reading-room and library’, the tiny and attractive village of Ochiltree is tucked away in rural Ayrshire waiting to be discovered. Its sleepy atmosphere belies its lively past as a centre of Covenanting activity in the 17th century and the place where John Knox himself was married. This collection of photographs gives a flavour of life in the late 19th and early 20th century.
