Publisher's description: Lanarkshire and Renfrewshire are among the least-known counties in Scotland, but no other area can lay claim to their astounding diversity of character. Though situated close to Glasgow's bustle, Lanarkshire's deeply rural villages contain troves of cottages and churches; the county is also dotted with the former steel and iron towns of the Lanarkshire coal fields, which supported a profitable mining industry from the mid-18th until the early 20th century. To Lanarkshire's west, Renfrewshire boasts the medieval center of Paisley, and the great port of Greenock along the River Clyde. Featuring new photography and the clear and careful exposition that are hallmarks of this acclaimed series, this book will be the fifteenth and final volume in the Buildings of Scotland.
