In Blantyre's first-ever children's book, join Brae on a mission to learn about the area, and discover what life has been like throughout time! Written and illustrated by Blantyre local, Zoe Dargue, this book is packed with never before seen art of Blantyre, Scotland taken from historical and modern photographs of the area. 

Together, you'll wander through Blantyre's past, present, and future. Go back to Mickey's Cafe for ice cream, or Benham's shop for sweets and the newspaper. You'll learn about the streets named after real people, and why they get the privilege when others did not. 

Learn about the history of the people, businesses, and buildings that makes the town what it is today. Following in the pawsteps of the likes of David Livingstone, you'll discover what made the town as big as it is. Discover Blantyre with Brae The Stray, and spread the history of this beautiful small town!
