    The Freedom Lands stretch in a vast semi-circle around the west side of Aberdeen. This third volume of Morgan's trilogy traces the history of the quarter from the 14th century, when Robert the Bruce bestowed these lands on the city, through their development during the 18th century, to the present. Illustrated with period photographs, maps and prints, the book explores an architectural legacy as diverse as Scottish mansions and Turkish baths, and local characters ranging from dilettantes and dancing masters to Enlightenment polymaths.
