The Highland Line Cemetery is located on the East Half of Lot 6, Concession 9, Dalhousie Township, Lanark County, Ontario, Canada. It was established in the early 1800s as a private burial ground. Neil McNeil, the original land owner. He received his land grant in 1825, but later sold the land to John Playfair in 1845.

Mr. Playfair sold the property to John Hamilton in 1855, who, in turn, sold it to John McLellan in 1866. It is currently owned by the Adam family.

The earliest documented burial at the site is that of Charles McLean, who died March 23, 1836. It is likely there were interments prior to this, but there are no records.

It is currently managed by the Township of Lanark Highlands.
