The Times invites readers to be the laid of their own Scottish glen. The story goes:

The Highlands offer quality of life, low prices and high happiness ratings. Take a tour of the hills, lochs and moors

You might spot some celebs:

Its lochs and glens have inspired songs, films and poems. The scenery of Skye formed the background to Virginia Woolf’s novel To the Lighthouse, which continues to win accolades nearly 100 years after its creation. Even the most unlikely of celebrities want to call it home — Bob Dylan purchased Aultmore House in Strathspey in 2007.

 

You won’t see Jimmy Savile but you might spot his old house Allt Na Reigh in the “bewitching” Highlands:

Let’s zoom in:

Looks like a nice spot. As the Times says:

Recently released surveys confirm what Highlanders already know: that living there is good for the soul.

Which might or might be residing in Hell.
