Description

This poetry collection is fundamentally a poet’s love letter to the Scottish Highlands, its beauty, geography, history and its people. In this book, which celebrates 25 years of travel and exploration of the Highland landscape, the poet has woven a wide ranging thesis, at its face at times a travel guide and memoir of moments, time and places, and at another level, as is the poet’s calling, a more profound and deeper analysis of time, journeys and the evaluation of self.

It is a collection from a writer who understands the need to question himself and ponder the answers, as he believes the pathways to growth and personal understanding can be found there.

There is no denying the profound impact of the Scottish Highlands on the writer, from his early days and first visits right through to later odysseys through a landscape he has grown to love and has changed with him across the years. Through his descriptions of northern castles, lochs, hills and glens, the poet has found a unique view of the dramatic Highlands of Scotland, and the emotions it creates, and delivers a deep and thoughtful collection of scenic, personal and journeyman poetry. The book clearly highlights a true and enduring love for a people and place, the wonder of unparalleled locations, and a poet’s roaming pilgrimages though a breath-taking land.

  1. Barry Aplin

    Ross Lanes passion for Scotland comes through with every word he writes. Anyone who has travelled Scotland and reads this poetry will have images of the Highlands and it’s history going through the mind with every poem.

  2. Mat Aplin

    The authors skill in painting pictures with words and conveying his emotional response to a landscape or a situation (historical or otherwise) is second to none. As someone who shares a passion for Scotland, Ross Lanes latest work, “Highlands”, is an absolute triumph! If you love Scotland you’ll adore “Highlands”, if you love “Highlands” you’ll adore Scotland.

  3. Jeremie Bowles

    A thoughtful and searching journey that has been over two decades in the making. Ross Lane shares his memories of the Highlands in his latest poetry work, capturing the imagery and timbre of the region like no other. A joy to read that takes you to the loch-shores and mountains of Caledonia.

  4. Depesh Nathwani

    Ross Lane is a great writer and has a way with words that bring it to life. Great read!!!

  5. Raj Guliati

    The writer (Ross Lane) easily navigates the path from the human soul to the consciousness. The words are thoughtful and thought inspiring.

  6. Mark Jefferies

    Ross Lane brings a lyrical intensity to the commonplaces of shared thought and language to crystallise the truth of things.

  7. Peter Wortley

    Ross Lane’s work never fails to inspire deep thought.
    As a heathen engineer, fairly new to the world of poetry, I am fascinated by the way Ross combines powerful imagery and beautiful language to capture the imagination of the reader and reveal his innermost feelings and thoughts.
