HOWGATE: New local history book by Colin Whittemore and Rosemary Marwick

A FASCINATING glimpse into the history of a Midlothian farming community is provided in a new book.

A Living From The Edinburghshire Countryside by Colin Whittemore offers snapshots of country life in the Howgate area from 1745 to the present day.

The book, launched at Howgate Kirk this week, is a labour of love for Colin, emeritus professor of agriculture at Edinburgh University.
