Sir Walter Scott's Highlands

Sir Walter Scott (1771–1832) played a major role in creating the heroic image of the Scottish Highlands. His works fuse wild landscapes, turbulent history and romantic traditions into powerful patriotic narratives.

"Land of brown heath and shaggy wood, Land of mountain and the flood, Land of my sires! What mortal hand Can e,er untie the filial band
That knits me to thy rugged strand."
