Product description


‘The Highlands are a great wildlife area, and this finely illustrated volume in the New Naturalist series is an excellent guide to their natural riches.’
The Scotsman

‘Together these two experts have produced a magnificently detailed account of the abundant wild life of the Highlands and Islands of Scotland. This is just the book for an intelligent reader to pack on his next visit to the North.’
The Church Times

‘This is simply crammed with information, made real and alive by the author’s ecological approach. Nothing is observed in isolation. Again and again they reveal, in terms of cause and effect, relationships I had puzzled over or, indeed, had never guessed at.’
The Listener

‘There is no question at all of the value of the book as a mine of information on the natural history and ecology of the Highlands, and it is certainly essential reading for anyone who is interested in these subjects. The book is finely produced and illustrated.’
The Times Literary Supplement

About the Author

F. F. Darling: 1903-1979. Animal ecologist, conservation prophet and environmental sage, author of Natural History in the Highlands and Islands (1947). A much-admired but enigmatic man, melancholic, reflective, perhaps more influential as a philosopher than scientist. Lived primitive life on islands, but liked his comforts – books, claret, pets and collections of jade, carpets, bronzes and glassware from around the world.

John Morton Boyd: 1925-1988. Ecologist and conservationist, author of The Highlands and Islands (1964, with F. Fraser Darling) and The Hebrides (1990, with his son, Ian Lamont Boyd). A pioneer of nature conservation north of the border, scientist, traveller, romantic and ardent lover of nature.
