Gregor Lamb records and interprets the placenames of South Ronaldsay and Burray.
By Gregor Lamb
In this title, Gregor Lamb not only records and interprets the placenames of South Ronaldsay and Burray, but also constantly refers to similarly derived placenames elsewhere in Orkney and Shetland.
The glossary of placenames not only interprets the name, where possible, but also adds interesting historical notes, a grid reference and, in teh case of houses, provides details of their occupancy or condition.
Many of the placenames covered have not been seen in print before and if they had not been captured whould have been lost.
