The Wild Places.
This latest collection of panoramic photographs by award-winning
photographer Colin Prior celebrates the breathtaking scenery
of Scotland's wildland areas. It follows the longstanding success
of his earlier book Highland Wilderness. Whereas Highland Wilderness

images encourage stewardship of the Highlands by inspiration
rather than rhetoric.
