This book brings to life some of the most breathtaking scenery in the British Isles. The author has explored every nook and cranny of the Highlands and Skye — as well as the mountaintops. The Highlands are one of Europe’s last great wilderness areas, one of the few remaining landscapes where the luxuries of solitude, silence and space abound. While the tourist boards tend to perpetuate the myths of kilt and bagpipe, the Loch Ness monster and romantic medieval castles, most people visit Scotland for the reality — for the beauty and great diversity of its scenery, to discover remote lochs, atmospheric glens and dramatic mountains. Touring the Scottish Highlands by car, enjoying the picnic suggestions, or walking in the Scottish Highlands, this book will allow you to discover the very best the Highlands have to offer. Stephen Whitehorne is one of Scotland’s best-known photographer/authors. The photographic images in this book — all of calendar quality — will whet your appetite and remain a wonderful souvenir of your holiday in the Highlands.

Area covered: The book covers a vast geographical area — over half of Scotland in fact. Geologically speaking, the Scottish Highlands can be defined as the mountainous area which lies north of the Highland Boundary Fault. This fault line dissects the southern half of Loch Lomond and forms The Trossachs.

The best months for walking in the Scottish Highlands are from May to September.

Cancellations - non personalised/bespoke items

The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 (formerly the Distance Selling Regulations) provide consumers with the right to a 'cooling-off' period to allow you to change your mind. Under these regulations, you have the right to cancel your order, without explanation, within 14 days of delivery (starting the day after you receive the goods) and to return the goods for a refund within a further 14 days (28 days in total). The Distance Selling Regulations do not apply to businesses nor to individuals who are trading or acting as a trader (buying goods to re-sell for profit) because no-one is the 'Consumer'. This means there is no 'cooling-off' period and the order cannot be cancelled once processed.

Where an order is placed for an item which is to be personalised or is bespoke, cancellation is not possible once production has started and these are expressly excluded from The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 (formerly the Distance Selling Regulations).
