Western Highlands - The Highlands of Scotland - A Land of Magnificent Scenery and Historic Interest
(Series: Our Island)



'Scotland’s lochs and glens have been extolled in verse and song. They are renowned the world over. They add mystery and beauty to a scene that is full of historic and legendary associations.
This film shows many of the most conspicuous places of beauty and links them with Scottish history: Oban, a celebrated watering place; Ardconnel Castle, once the stronghold of the Men of Lorn; the battlefield of Dalry, scene of Robert Bruce’s struggle with the MacDougals; the famous Glengarry Falls; Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in the British Isles; Loch Etive, notable for its fishing; the village of Dornie, clustering on the shore of Loch Alsh; and Glencoe, grimly associated with the massacre of the MacDougals by the Campbells in 1692.'
