SUMMARY- All interior photographs are black-and-white. A doocot is essentially a pigeon coop. This gives a survey of the history and making of the Scottish doocots.

Shire Publications always includes a reading list and a visitor or museum listing where you can see real examples of the subject matter of the issue. I love that feature of these books and think it's worth the price of admission all by itself!
