Highlands, generally speaking, that portion of the
mainland of Scotland on and beyond the Grampians, in
which the population is (or was) mainly Celtic, and the
language Gaelic. The imaginary line between the
Highlands and the Lowlands has commonly been re-
garded as commencing at the mouth of the river Nairn
(at Nairn, on the Moray Firth); it runs thence SE. to
the Dee (at Dinnet, 4 miles AY. of Aboyne, Aberdeen-
shire) ; thence S. to the West Water (a headstream
of the North Esk, Forfarshire); and thence SW. to the
Clyde at Ardmore (opposite Greenock). Some parts of
this district, however (notably Caithness), are not
marked by the usual physical features of the Highlands.
