About this book

In the very north of Britain, far from the bustling cities and picturesque countryside to the south, lies Western Europe's greatest wilderness: the Scottish Highlands.

This is a land shaped by the flow of ancient ice, where snow-capped mountains tower over ink-black lochs, Golden Eagles soar over heather-clad moors, and Red Deer stags engage in mortal combat for the right to win a mate. Sea cliffs and offshore islands teem with millions of seabirds, while the seas themselves are home to Basking Sharks, Orcas and Bottlenose Dolphins.

The Highlands can at times seem bleak and desolate, but they are also filled with secret wonders, from the ancient Caledonian pine forests to the vast Flow Country, and from the sheer granite cliffs of Handa to the mysterious depths of Loch Ness.

Accompanying the four-part BBC series narrated by Ewan McGregor, Highlands: Scotland’s Wild Heart features insightful text and spectacular photography chronicling a year in the lives of a stellar cast of wild animals as they struggle to survive in a beautiful yet unforgiving landscape.

Media reviews

"Well-researched, topical text and magnificent photography in a contemporary take on iconic landscapes that will attract many to the UK's prime wildlife haven."
BBC Wildlife

"Laurie is, in my opinion, the finest nature photographer working in the British Isles at the current time. A consummate professional [...] he is a master of field craft as well as innovation [...] With such instantly captivating photography, it can be easy to overlook the importance of Highlands' text [...] There is no drum-banging, heavy science or aggression. His [Stephen Moss'] tone, like that of Laurie, is that of an intensely knowledgeable naturalist who cares deeply. [...] Stephen Moss and Laurie Campbell have produced a reflection of all that encompasses the Highlands, summarising brilliantly in words and photographs the reason why Scotland's unique, constantly threatened wildlife is so precious."
– Polly Pullar, Scot's Magazine
