Illustrated by way of: Colour Photographs;

From the cover: The wind whips along the lonely glen, bringing flurries of snow down from the brooding peaks and scattering the flakes across the heather to cover the graves of the ancient clan dead and bank against the herdsmans shelter. Such is the traditional view of the Scottish landscape, and to a large measure it is true, but as the glorious compilation of photographs in this book shows, there is far more to the northern land than tradition declares. There are the tranquil lowlands, where the rumble of farm machinery echoes across the soft landscape of fields and woodlands. Out to the west, like sentinels in the rolling ocean, rise the windswept, heathered islands which have become the subject of so many haunting airs and poems. Gaunt castles rise above the dark, still waters of the lochs which cast their all-pervading magic over the country. But it is still the romantic highlands which draw the imagination and tug at the heartstrings of Scots everywhere.
