The Highlands’ rich history stretches back 4,000 years. In prehistoric times, Highlanders lived in homes built out over lochs, called crannogs, and buried their dead amid mystical stone configurations, or cairns. Thanks to the efforts of modern Scots, you can still admire crannogs and cairns today. Visit http://www.ricksteves.com for more information about this destination and other destinations in Europe.
