The Braes of Glenlivet lie on the eastern edge of the Grampian mountains, in one of Scotlands most active whisky-producing areas. This collection of stories and memories spans a century of life on farms and around Chapletown and Scalan. Mostly the work of Isobel Grant (but with reminiscences from others and also sections on history and place-names), it is a wonderful portrait of everyday life and a fascinating social document of a district that lost most of its people between the two world wars. The author paints a vivid picture of her
family, friends and neighbours as she follows their fortunes through the years and describes a way of life now changed forever.
