About The Book
A glimpse inside the finest country houses of the Scottish Highlands. This book features breathtaking photographs of Scotland’s most remarkable and romantic country houses. Built as seasonal homes, they range from picturesque cottages ornées and Scotch baronial castles inspired by Queen Victoria’s Balmoral to Arts and Crafts mansions and modern fantasies set among wild mountains and remote glens. A strong element of the book is the shooting lodge, designed to accommodate parties of guests who flocked north for the annual sporting season. While the exteriors were designed in response to the dramatic landscape and Romantic notions of Scotland’s past, the interiors were comfortably equipped for leisure and entertaining. Furniture and upholstery were sourced from leading London and Parisian firms: tartan, taxidermy, and weapons were used decoratively to enhance the Scottish theme. Images from Country Life and specially commissioned photographs evoke the dramatic settings and arresting detail of these houses, making the book as appealing to decorators and historians as it is to travelers and sportsmen.
