Highlands & Pieter Lassing's home location?

I keep seeing reference to people being baptised/born in the Highlands and also Pieter Lassing's home (NY Lutheran Churchbook). Where were these two locations? I was assuming Highlands was in the Hudson river valley but would like confirmation

Surnames: The Highlands of Scotland.
Hi,
Much of the northern half of Scotland is referred to as the Highlands, because it is a mountainous region..
Many Scots who went overseas to Australia, USA, Canada or New Zealand were from the Highlands...

However, it is possible that other countries have a region of mountainous countryside that they also call the highlands.

Brian, Glasgow, Scotland.

One "Highlands" is Highlands, Orange County, New York State, nickname for Highland Falls. Highland Falls is on the west side of the Hudson River, south of Kingston, Poughkeepsie and Newburgh; it is immediately south of the US Military Academy at West Point. When my family drove from Albany to New York City on Route 9W, we passed through Highland Falls, NY.
