The Highland Line is the most profound internal boundary in Britain: it divides the country both geologically and culturally, signaling the border between Highland and Lowland, Celtic and English-speaking, crofting and farming.

In addition to exploring the huge importance of the Line over the course of almost 2,000 years, the book also shows how it continues to influence life and attitudes in 21st-century Scotland.
