The Glens of Silence

The Glens of Silence: The Landscapes of... the Scottish Clearances. During the last years of the eighteenth century and the first half of the nineteenth, tens of thousands of Highlanders were forcibly removed from land on which their families had lived for generations. Often evicted in the most autocratic and brutal manner, they were moved to marginal and unworkable areas, often on the coast, while the land from which they were wrenched was given over to large-scale sheep farming. Many were subsequently forced to make new lives for themselves in the Lowlands or colonies after their failure to make any kind of living on such unproductive soil - a dismal situation which was compounded by the potato famine of 1846. Stunning colour photographs depict the actual townships as they are today and the landscapes from which so many were banished, each conveying not only the natural beauty and colour of some of Scotland's most spectacular scenery, but also capturing the spirit of these places that witnessed such traumatic and shattering events.

Elements The Landscape of Scotland

Elements: The Landscape of Scotland. In a book filled with breathtaking images, Craig McMaster has captured the essence of Scotland's wild landscape. From Rannoch Moor and Glencoe to Ardnamurchan, Torridon, Glen Affric, Arran, Iona and beyond, Craig explores towering mountains, secluded coves, enigmatic stone circles, dramatic skies and hidden lakes.

Wild Scottish Places

Scotland: The Wild Places. This latest collection of panoramic photographs by award-winning photographer Colin Prior celebrates the breathtaking scenery of Scotland's wildland areas. It follows the longstanding success of his earlier book Highland Wilderness. Whereas Highland Wilderness focused on the issues involved in conserving the Highlands, this time Prior presents a mature reflection on the space and silence of those wild places, a salutory reminder to people that even in today's world such places do exist. His remarkable images encourage stewardship of the Highlands by inspiration rather than rhetoric.

Beautiful Villages of Scotland

The Most Beautiful Villages of Scotland. A collection of lavish photographs celebrates some of Scotland's most scenic glens and lochs, in a tribute that features such subjects as the picturesque fishing village of Auchmithie, the Edinburgh-surrounded community of Dean Village, and the island port-village of Tobermory on Mull.

Shetland: Island Guide (Colin Baxter... Photography)

Hebridean Light. A unique collection of colour photographs of the Hebrides by the celebrated photographer Gus Wylie. For his monochrome work, Wylie has been acclaimed by author Michael Russell as 'The best modern photographer of the Western Isles'. This collection is a lyrical exploration of the possibilities that colour offers: a sense of time, and place a feel of the unique atmosphere and light that can only be found in the Hebrides; of the extraordinary quality of translucent water upon the freshness of white unpolluted sands. Wylie has built up the collection using pairs of images on double page spreads: comparing, for example, the colours of earth lichen and water in one shot with an image of a crofter weaving tweed in Harris. The result is a magical, beautiful collection acknowledges the incredible sensual pleasure of the environment.
