Aside from Glasgow, which has featured in two volumes of the Lost Tramways series, there were a number of other tramways that served the west of Scotland. These included those that served the towns of Ayr and Kilmarnock, the north and south banks of the Clyde – reaching places like Dumbarton, Balloch, Greenock and Gourock – Rothesay on Bute and the industrial heartland of Lanarkshire to the south-east of Glasgow itself. All prospered for a period but changing fashions and the rise of the bus industry saw all disappear by the start of World War II.

Locations featured include: Ayr, Carstairs, Dumbarton, Gourock, Kilmarnock, Hamilton, Wishaw, Bellshill, Rothesay and Ettrick Bay.

The Lost Tramways series documents the tram networks which were at the heart of many of Britain’s growing towns and cities from the mid-19th century to the mid-20th century. An informative, accessible and portable resource for the tram enthusiast as well as the general reader, and a superb souvenir or gift for visitors past and present.
