The Highlands were ethnically cleansed last century to make way for sheep and are now the least populated area in Europe, with a population density of only 9.5 people per square kilometre. There is plenty of elbow-room in the area for refugees.
I, like many other Highlanders, would rather see the glens re-populated - or are they forever to be the domain of bleating sheep and absentee landlords?
