Sec­ond edi­tion by Strath ex­pert Lind­say

Strathearn Herald - - MEMORY LANE - Lynn Duke

Crieff shops fea­ture in the sec­ond edi­tion of a pop­u­lar guide to Scot­land’s tra­di­tional shopfronts.

Muthill res­i­dent Dr Lind­say Len­nie has had a sec­ond edi­tion of her guide to the his­tory and con­ser­va­tion of tra­di­tional shop fronts pub­lished by His­toric En­vi­ron­ment Scot­land (HES).

Ian Hamil­ton, chair­man of Strathearn and District Ar­chae­o­log­i­cal So­ci­ety wel­comed the new edi­tion. He told the Her­ald: “The free book is pri­mar­ily in­tended to as­sist own­ers and tenants of his­tor­i­cally sig­nif­i­cant premises to max­imise the po­ten­tial of their in­vest­ment by ex­ploit­ing the ar­chi­tec­tural fea­tures which can at­tract cus­tom by of­fer­ing a unique, wel­com­ing en­vi­ron­ment. How­ever, res­i­dents in any town or vil­lage for­tu­nate to have such shops would find this pub­li­ca­tion fas­ci­nat­ing and in no way a dry, aca­demic read.”
