Scotland - Northern Highlands & Islands (Chapter)
This is the Northern Highlands & Islands chapter from Lonely Planet's Scotland guidebook.
Scotland's vast and melancholy soul is here: an epic land with a stark beauty that leaves an indelible imprint on the hearts of those who journey through it. Mist and mountains, rock and heather, and long, sun-blessed summer evenings are the payoff for so many days of horizontal rain. It's simply magical.
