  Scottish Lowlands - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Scottish Lowlands, although not officially a geographical area of the country, in normal usage is generally meant to include those parts of Scotland not referred to as the Highlands (or Gàidhealtachd), that is, everywhere due south and east of a line (the Highland Boundary Fault) between Stonehaven and Bowling (Firth of Clyde).
Orkney and Shetland are sometimes called "lowland", mainly because of their current language, but have a separate identity, to the point of some islanders not considering themselves Scottish.
The term Scottish Lowlands is generally used mostly with reference to the Lowland Scots, Scottish history and the Scottish clan system, as well as in family history and genealogy.

 Eastern Ridges and Lowlands - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
In the U.S. state of Wisconsin, the Eastern Ridges and Lowlands is a geographical region in the eastern part of the state, between the Bay of Green Bay in the north and the state border with Illinois border in the south.
The Eastern Ridges and Lowlands region is primarily a plain with elevations between 700 and 900 feet above sea level, but the region slopes enough to form two broad ridges running from north to south that exceed 1,000 feet above sea level in some places.
Between the two ridges is a lowland carved out by the glaciers of the last ice age.

 Lowlands Talk .:. an introduction to the language varieties of the Lowlands
Before Lowlands Saxon came to be well and truly overshadowed and suppressed by German, many of its speakers still referred to it as “Saxon” (sassysch, etc.) or “Low(lands) Saxon” (nedersassysch, etc.), some as late as in the 19th and early 20th century.
Lowlands Saxon today thus consists of a mass of dialects that are written in various ways, using inconsistently, idiosyncratically applied spelling guidelines based on German and Dutch conventions.
Lowlands Saxon was officially recognized as a “regional language” in the Eastern Netherlands (1997) and in Northern Germany (1999) within the framework of the European Language Charter.

The lowlands are a lovely area of Scotland that most tourists miss visiting as they drive straight through from England to Edinburgh and Glasgow.
Very old Lowland malts (25 to 35-years-old)seem to pick up a great deal of the wood flavor of the casks and can sometimes be a bit overwhelmed by it.

The coastal lowlands aquifer system consists of a gulf-ward-thickening, heterogeneous, unconsolidated to poorly consolidated wedge of discontinous beds of sand, silt, and clay that range in age from Oligocene to Holocene (fig.
Sediments that compose the coastal lowlands aquifer sys-tem were, for the most part, transported by rivers and streams that flowed coastward and were deposited in deltaic environments.
Under natural conditions, recharge to the coastal lowlands aquifer system was greatest in the topographically high areas east and west of the Mississippi River and along the landward margin of the aquifer (fig.

 Amazon.com: Music: Lowlands   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
On Lowlands, her second collection of traditional songs, her connection with the roots of Celtic music is so deep that when she mixes instruments like the kora (African harp), erhu (Chinese fiddle), and tabla (Indian drum) with the less exotic violin, guitar, and tin whistle the results sound absolutely right.
Songs like "The Snows They Melt the Soonest," which features the fiddling of Johnny Cunningham, and "The Lowlands of Holland," a lament about a lover's death at sea, are infused with the sense of loss and longing that haunt the emigrant in a new land.
Lowlands is a collection of mostly traditional Celtic songs, performed with a markedly non-traditional flair.

 Lowlands - Malt Whisky Regions - www.scotchwhisky.com
For the style of Lowland whisky is much lighter than Highland, with little or no peating, and this had much broader appeal.
By the 1880s almost the entire production of the Lowland distilleries went for blending: today, it is possible (and more cost effective) to create Highland malts with a light character to suit the requirements of blenders.
The dryness comes from the malt itself, not from peat (Lowlands tend to use unpeated malt), and this also lends a certain sweet fruitiness to the flavour and mouthfeel.

The northern Lowlands were also comprised of forests but they were drier than their southern counterparts, mainly growing small thorny trees.
The lowlands primarily produced crops which were used for their own personal consumption, the principle cultigen being maize.
Although the lowlands were not the source of any of these commodities, they still played an important role as the origin of the transportation routes.

 CH 2001(5) - Means and Krysko
Populations inhabiting the eastern Apalachicola Lowlands, a distinct biotic province, are different from the surrounding populations in having fewer and wider light body crossbands, distinct ontogenetic interband lightening, unique ventral patterns, and the presence of non-banded (striped and patternless) individuals.
The eastern Apalachicola Lowlands population is distinct in having crossband numbers from 1 to 25 (mean = 11.5), crossband width from 3 to 200 (mean = 77.4) dorsal scale rows, lightened interbands rated as C and D, ventral patterns of bicolor or loose checkerboard with interspersed bicolor scales, and non-banded (striped or patternless) morphs.
The proximity of the Apalachicola Lowlands to the Gulf of Mexico, and the fact that extensive barrier islands have developed offshore in the past 6500 years (Stapor, 1975), suggests isolation might have been in the form of ancient islands or peninsulas created by high stands of the sea during the Pleistocene.

The southeastern part of the lowlands is a continuation of the Chaco of Paraguay.
Most of Bolivia's important rivers are found in the water-rich northern parts of the lowlands, particularly in the Alto Beni (Upper Beni), where the land is suitable for crops such as coffee and cacao.
The northern lowlands are drained by wide, slow-moving rivers, the three largest of which--the Mamoré, Beni, and Madre de Dios--all flow northward into the Madeira River in Brazil and eventually into the Amazon.

The Northwest Lowlands Ecological Landscape forms a triangular wedge in northwestern Wisconsin, bounded on the north by the Superior Coastal Plain and on the south and east by the Northwest Sands.
The total land area for the Northwest Lowlands Ecological Landscape is approximately 421,000 acres, of which 74% is classified as timberland.
The forest products and processing industries are not a major contributor to the economy of the Northwest Lowlands Region (4% of total industrial output); however, this may be due to the influence of the City of Superior on economic measures for Douglas County.

The large population of buried impact basins found in MOLA data in the northern lowlands of Mars suggests that the crust beneath a relatively thin veneer of lowland plains is extremely old.
Alternatively, it could be that burial of the lowlands removed enough of the total population to depress the lowland curve at all diameters.
We find evidence for several probable buried basins in the lowlands and at least one in the highlands that are similar to Hellas, Argyre, Isidis, Chryse and Utopia in size.

 Glenkinchie: Lowlands distillery- Scotch Whisky -
Situated near Edimburgh, Glenkinchie is with Auchentoshan one of the last active distilleries in the Lowlands.
This Lowlands, part of the Classic Malts, distillers edition, is a very fresh whisky with very nice cut grass hints.
The taste remains typical of a Lowland, light and pleasant, and the sherry, even if it is still present in the palate, does not denature the characteristic freshness of malts from that area.

Her amber tones weave a spell when first they are heard, and you are not yourself again until the music comes to an end.
Lowlands, her sixth album, is one of the most fascinating works I have listened to in what seems ages.
Again the album turns to an Oriental sound, this time on another unlikely candidate, "The Lowlands of Holland." The mournful vocals are accompanied by just the eerily beautiful sounds of an erhu and a banjo plucked very slowly and deliberately.

 ANCIENT LOWLANDS ON MARS: BURIED IMPACT BASINS AND AGE OF THE CRUSTAL DICHOTOMY   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
The cumulative number of lowland "MOLA-found" basins per unit area is greater than that for visible impact basins in the highlands, but less than that for buried highland basins.
The visible highlands in Noachis-Arabia are on average Middle Noachian in age, and the cumulative crater density is consistent with this.
The buried lowland surface is therefore older than Middle Noachian and may be as old as the Early Noachian.

 Lowlands of Scotland
A couple were from lowland Clan members, one of whom mentioned that when they think of lowlanders they immediately think of clans, but that he would concede the fact that not all Scots were members of nor associated with clans.
All of these factors combined to create in the Lowlander a Scot with language, dress, and customs more like those of England than the inhabitants of the northern mountains of Scotland who remained relatively isolated, mostly Gaelic speaking, and considered to be heathens by the people of the Lowlands.
When I say that the Scots in the lowlands were more like the English in culture that is not to say that they were very like the English.

The only thing these Counties had in common was that they were situated in the so called "Lowlands" they were no more then a "Vassal" state, to the Kings of Germany (the Roman Empire) and the Kings of France and later the Habsburg Empire.
