About this book

Another volume in the widely read New Naturalist series, Galloway and the Borders is an in-depth study of the natural developments and history of Galloway and surrounding areas. This edition is produced from an original copy by William Collins.

Often overlooked due to the reputation of natural habitat in other parts of the country, the author here conveys the diversity and magnificence of nature in the south of Scotland.

Galloway and the borders is an extremely varied region, from saltmarshes and shingle beaches to rocky islands and seabird stations. The wide range of hills, displaying a wealth of rich colours, give the area its dominant character. The varied selection of flora and fauna only add to the diversity.

Media reviews

"A testament to the profound understanding that the author had of this corner of the world."
BBC Wildlife

"[...] a magical and detailed guide to the natural history of this 'unexpected Eden' in Scotland."
Country Homes & Interiors

"This excellent addition to the New Naturalist series seems certain to become the definitive reference for those with a love of Southern Scotland and its natural history."
Scottish Bird News

"One of Britain's greatest field naturalists describes in detail that broad "chest" of upland country that lies just south of Scotland's slender neck between Edinburgh and Glasgow [...] the fluency of his style and his massive expertise in upland ecology draw out its huge beauty, wildlife riches and the perennial impact of humans upon its diverse landscapes"
– Mark Cocker, The Guardian
