Well, for Highland accents you don't want to listen to re-runs of "Take The High Road" or even the more up-to-date series like "Monarch Of The Glen".

While Highland accents are quite distinct from each other eg Stornoway, Inverness (usually said to be Scotland's best accent), Ross-shire, Oban, Campbeltown etc etc, I'm so out of touch I can't help to give you modern examples you can listen to.

Maybe Polwarth or someone can help ?

Maybe You Tube might have examples if the right search is done ?
