Some brief overview of this book

The magnificent Highlands of Scotland represent, in so many ways, ancient Britain.

But much of this apparently wild environment is, in fact, far more recent in origin—it has been shaped by the Victorians. Castles in the Mist reveals how, for better or for worse, the vast sporting estates of the Victorian era created the salmon rivers, deer forests, and grouse moors, transforming the Highlands into the landscape that we recognize today, with its attendant environmental problems. In a seductive blend of memoir, history, and natural history, Robin Noble explores the colossal impact of the Victorian legacy in his beloved Highlands and issues a clarion call for change—to start tipping the balance back in nature's favor.
