30 Years in Pictures
Celebrate National Geographic Traveler's first three decades with flashes from the past.

Punk meets shag as Willie Dowllan feds Rufty and Tufty, Highland cattle kept by the owner of the Loch Ericht Inn in Dalwhinnie, Scotland. Jim Richardson took this photo for "History in a Bottle," a look at the Scottish Highlands—and its single malt whisky—that appeared in the July/August 2001 issue of Traveler. Senior photo editor Carol Enquist and associate photo editor Ben Fitch discuss the image and what makes it so powerful.
