About this book

Native Scot Donald Greig first visited Dumfries and Galloway for childhood holidays, since when the area has held a special appeal which has drawn him back. He is a keen walker, erstwhile bird watcher and sometimes sailor and has strong interest in conservation, vernacular architecture and local history and folklore.

Darren Flint is a relative newcomer to Dumfries and Galloway but was hooked from the outset. After 20 years working in tourism and then conservation with the RSPB, he recently completed a Masters in Environmental Conservation from UCL. An avid naturalist with a fascination for Lepidoptera, he likes nothing better than donning his boots and uncovering those hidden corners we all dream about.
