Packed with illustrations of places, buildings and of aspects of life which are now vanished, and containing a history of various elements of life in the area, Bishop illustrates changes in the way of life of the people of the Burghs of Nairn, Forres and Elgin, and in the smaller towns and villages.

The effect of these lost elements on the coastal towns is also discussed, with particular focus placed on the demise of the ports of Findhorn, Nairn and Garmouth, and the more recent decline in the fishing industry. His journey trough the region takes him from prehistory to the present day, and examines everything from geology, architecture, agriculture, industry, to communications.

Lost Moray and Nairn is an important, illuminating and compelling account and a worthy new addition to the Birlinn series.
