Michael Scott writes his biannual column, view from the Highlands, from his home in Wester Ross in the north-west Highlands of Scotland. He is now largely retired as a writer, broadcaster and conservationist. He is a former Scottish Officer of Plantlife, and served terms as Chair of Scottish Environment Link and Deputy Chair of Scottish Natural Heritage. He was awarded an OBE in 2005 ‘for services to biodiversity conservation in Scotland’. His book Mountain Flowers is number four in the British Wildlife Collection (Bloomsbury Wildlife). In alleged retirement, he is now happily exploring the world as a regular guest speaker on wildlife subjects on cruise ships.
