An alternative map of Scotland. Place names tell of old cultures, of history, geography, industry, religion and myth. Scottish place names have their origin in several languages; Gaelic, Pictish, Norse, English, French, Latin and Scots. In The Hidden Place over 100 place names are replaced by phrases revealing the original meaning of these names. Each place becomes a piece of condensed folk poetry, revealing the riches of the past with a quiet lyricism; bay of the bent grass, place of pebbles, slope of brightness. The Hidden Place is one long poem about the land and its people.
