Badenoch means “Drowned Land” and the topography of this area makes sense of the name. Arial photography points up the stark contrast between the flat valley floor and the steep slopes of the highland Cairngorms on the one hand and the Mondhliath mountains on the other. During WW2, the area was a combat training ground and hunting estates brought in money to the area soon afterwards. Made famous by the series Monarch of the Glen, the area has seen a resurgence of tourism of recent years and activities such as walking, mountaineering, mountain biking, kayaking sailing and pony trekking are on the rise. 52 beautiful photographs document over a century of change complimented by Ann Glen’s fact-filled captions.
