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.
