How about some slide scans (mostly 1977 - 1980) from the Aleutian Islands? Followers of the TV series Deadliest Catch may recognize some of the place names.

Yes and no. The Aleutians are volcanic as opposed to the (mainly) metamorphic rocks in the Hebrides. The lowland areas look similar in that there are few trees. In the case of the west of Scotland and the Western Isles that's mainly due to overgrazing by generations of sheep; in the Aleutians it's mainly climatological - too few growing days, even though the Aleutians are generally south of the Highlands and Islands. (The Gulf Stream warms the Scottish coast; no such luck with the Chain.) But yeah, they can look the same -

Northern Sutherland coast near Durness and Smoo Cave (ca. 1975)

Uig, Skye (also ca. 1975)

They're quite different from the air, however.
