 wine and refreshments

Part-guidebook and part-memoir, Colin McCosh’s epic celebrates one of Perthshire’s most captivating glens – looking at the past, the present and the people.Although small, this area of land has been mighty in its impact – not just locally but globally. McCosh’s entertaining and wonderfully detailed social history brings Glenericht to life with compelling portraits of politicians and soldiers, farmers and financiers, through the ages to present day. With keen observational skills and a warm touch, what emerges is a buzzing, cosmopolitan world, telling near-forgotten tales of battles and cattle-raiders, family feuds and murder – all on our doorstep! Feats of engineering and infrastructure are magically interwoven with legends, myths and ghost stories. McCosh’s characteristic enthusiasm and affection shine through every word, showing you the glen as you’ve never seen it before.
