Tynron from Auchenbrack to the forestry.  This photo was on the cover of the first edition on “Tynron Glen”.  The foreground is now under forestry

This 2nd edition has only been made possible through the generous sponsorship of Mrs Pat Smith of The Hague, The Netherlands.  

Thanks to my son, James Shaw, for the computer and help with computing.

Thanks to Vanessa Gourlay for her watercolour of the tormentil.

Thanks to the Ordnance Survey for permission to use OS maps.

Thanks to Buccleuch Estates for use of maps.

Thanks to the Dumfries and Galloway Standard for permission to use articles.

Thanks to the Dumfries and Galloway Natural History and Antiquarian Society for permission too.

This work has been a labour of love, a tired old cliché (I am fond of tired old clichés), but I have typed it all in using one finger, two if you count the shift key.  I imagine someone reading this in 2096 and I think of how much I would have enjoyed reading a book about Tynron written in 1896.  It is a home-made production, but I still hope that it gives enjoyment to a few folk and that this might inspire the next Willie Wilson to produce an improved version sometime in the future. 

Tynron Glen first produced using ™Kindwords 3 on an ™Amiga Computer April 1992.

The 1st edition was produced using ™Microsoft Word 7  and ™Windows 95 on an ™IBM.

This 2nd edition has minor changes and was printed by Copycats in Dumfries.

This is the second edition of which 100 copies were made.

There are 50 copies of the first edition out there somewhere too and an even earlier edition in the Ewart.
