Examining a broad range of maps, plans, paintings, drawings, sketches and printed pictures, this book discusses visual images as an alternative and undervalued source of evidence for ideas about the Scottish Highlands and Islands in the period 1700 to 1800. It explores the cultural perception of the Highlands during that time, particularly the bias in favour of antiquity, and the influence of visual representations of the region on approaches to Highland issues down to the present day.
