Synopsis

Britain's Last Frontier A Journey Along the Highland Line by Alistair Moffat, James Naughtie

The Highland Line is the most profound internal boundary in Britain. First recognised by Agricola in the first century AD (parts of its most northerly portion mark the furthest north the Romans got) it divides the country both geologically and culturally, signalling the border between Highland and Lowland, Celtic and English-speaking, crofting and farming.
