On Foot Through Clydesdale
By

Rating
First published in 1932, Iain C. Lees's book On Foot through Clydesdale is a fascinating and delightful introduction to the history, folklore, traditions and landscape of Lanarkshire - a county often assumed to have been blighted by collieries, steelworks, factories and other industrial enterprises. Yet Clydesdale has areas of extraordinary natural beauty, including the world-famous Falls of Clyde, considered to be one of the most romantic spots in the country.Clydesdale's past is also full of historical resonances - the Romans were much in evidence there; William Wallace lived there; Covenanters hid there; and the area was of crucial importance during the Industrial Revolution.Iain C. Lees explores the well-known parts as well as the hidden gems of Clydesdale in this delightful, nostalgic travel classic.
