Dennis Cowan – “Sundials of Scotland”

Dennis was born in Edinburgh and spent his early working life in the Telecoms industry, since 1988 working at Rosyth Dockyard, the last 13 years as a Contracts Manager. He retired three years ago.

His interest in sundials started about 12 years ago. He and his wife now spend a considerable amount of time travelling around Scotland looking for ancient sundials, first recorded in a book published in 1892. Some are easy to find, others less so, but so far he has photographed almost 500 sundials in Scotland with another 100 or so in England. He is a regular contributor to the quarterly magazine of the British Sundial Society.
