Highlands is a renowned historical region of Scotland. When Lowland Scots replaced Scottish Gaelic throughout most of the Lowlands, the region became originally recognizable from the Lowlands from the late Middle Ages to the modern period. The name is also used for the area north and west of the Highland Boundary Fault, despite the fact that the correct and definite boundaries are not yet clearly determined, most specifically, the boundaries on the east.
The area of the Scottish Highlands is seldom populated, due to the fact that it has many mountain ranges, which dominate the region. This includes the highest mountain in the British Isles, Ben Nevis. Long before the 19th century the Scottish Highlands was a home to a much bigger population; however, due to a mixed aspect, which includes the out casting of the traditional Highland way of life succeeding the Jacobite Rising of 1745, the infamous Highland Clearances, and mass migration to urban areas during the time of Industrial Revolution, the area is now one of the most sparsely populated in Europe.
Before there were 1800 poor and traditional people living in the Highlands; these populations were not much affected by the rise of the Scottish Enlightenment or the Industrial Revolution that was sweeping the Lowlands of Scotland. During the period of the Napoleonic wars, the war brought prosperity, optimism, and economic growth to the Highlands. The economy blossomed, thanks to wages paid by the industries, specifically kelping (in which kelp was burned for the useful chemicals collected from the ashes), fisheries, and weaving, as well as large-scale infrastructure spending such as the Caledonian Canal project.
The Highlands are most of the time characterised and described as a romantic part of Scotland. This is not at all strange given the dazzling and ravishing sincere nature with craggy mountains, deep blue lochs and empty glens where impressive and splendid red deer, which rule the hills and eagles rule the skies. Due to the ever and fast changing weather, the Highlands have a magical touch. One flash you see the hills, the next they are gone. Sunny streak and dark shadows move over the hills, and the white snow-capped mountains in winter give the Highlands a gleaming and glowing touch. The Highlands, and its castles, in particular are often chosen as wedding venue due to their romantic nature.
