About this book

Scattered across the Scottish Highlands are the last surviving remnants of the Caledonian forest which have survived, naturally seeding and growing since the last ice age. Visiting these ancient woods provides an emotional connection to the past with visible traces of the people who lived and worked there over the centuries. There is also a chance to look forward, after one of the greatest conservation success stories means a new future for the pinewoods and their spectacular wildlife.

The Ancient Pinewoods of Scotland is a journey to the pinewoods which offers a natural spectacle alongside a rich cultural heritage. The book is lavishly illustrated with many colour photographs, maps, and drawings by wildlife artist Darren Rees.
