About this book

A beautiful memoir of what it means to live in the rugged, awe-inspiring Scotland Highlands.

Annie Worsley is a Professor of Environmental Change. A few years ago, she took the plunge and moved to the remote North West Highlands of Scotland. It is a land of unquenchable spirit and severe wildness. In the Highlands, life is ruled by the great elemental forces – light, wind and water hold sway over how landforms, where the sea sits, and what grows. It also dictates how its people live.

Annie returns to prehistory to tell the epic story of how Scotland's valleys were carved by glaciers, how rivers scythed paths through the mountains, how the earliest people found a way of life in the Highlands – and how she then found a home there millennia later.

This is a vibrant memoir that will illuminate the beauty and force of the wild Scottish Highlands; Worsley's paean to a beloved place, one richer with colour, sound and life than perhaps anywhere else in the UK.

Customer Reviews


Annie O’Garra Worsley is a writer and blogger living in North West Scotland on a small holding known as a croft. She is also a physical geographer with particular interests in spatial and temporal relationships between people and the natural world. Her doctoral research examined human impacts in the montane rainforests of New Guinea and her more recent work investigated the long-term environmental change in the peat bogs, hills and coasts of North West England and the spatial and temporal history of pollution in urban environments. After a career break raising her four children, she returned to full-time academic life in 1999 and was awarded a Personal Chair in Environmental Change in 2009 by Edge Hill University.
